Artist Ro Lohin at Houghton House

A multifaceted artist who works with charcoal, sepia chalk, oil paint and watercolors, Ro Lohin has traveled the country drawing, painting and presenting her contemporary abstract paintings. This month, the HWS and Geneva communities will have an opportunity to discover her work during a solo art show exploring the nuanced dialogue between form-giving line and atmospheric space.

“Traditionally, a painter can establish the three-dimensional independence of objects with defined lines of contour and modeling in light and dark,” explains Professor of Art Michael Bogin. “But the objects in Lohin’s paintings hover suspended as they emerge from the color that floods our sensations.”

Owner of the Lohin Geduld Art Gallery in New York City, Lohin has studied at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, the New York Studio School and the Parsons School of Design. She has also been a Visiting Artist at The New School, Columbia University, American University and Alfred University.

The show opened on Friday, Jan. 23, at Houghton House, and will run through Wednesday, Feb. 25. Houghton House Gallery is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
