The summer series comes to a conclusion with the Back to School show at La Vie.

La Vie, Lawrenceville gallery and retail shop concludes their Endless Summer series with Back to School, a show thematically curated by school subject. Theme is not usually how Bronwyn Loughren and Thommy Conroy select artists for shows at La Vie, but for the final installment of the Endless Summer series, school subjects were assigned and the artists responded in earnest.

Craig Kirby is designated as Psychology with his inkjet and painted sleeping instructions next to Renee Ickes who informs us on History through ink on paper drawings. Joana Ricou abstracts the scientific in her oil paintings justly categorized by Biology and Edgar Um Bucholtz references Political Science, while Mike Budai is Playing Hooky. On the opposite wall of the gallery the unmistakable Tommy Bones appropriates Geology with an installation of cast objects. Alice Winn’s words underline each of her drawings in the Literature category and Thomas Kane takes you on a trip to the Guidance Counselor, just before last period Geometry with National Society of Arts and Letters awardee Anthony Leone.

Back to School will feature live music by The Indulgents: Randy Kovitz, Paul Bernstein, John Gresh and Bob Otte. La Vie will feature lunch box style refreshments. Endless Summer has been sponsored by the Brillobox.
