How is this for striking? The dark against that wonderful yellow and the mysterious light in the sky. Get out! Whoa! Also read more about Lois from Wikipedia

Read a bit about Lois from the Alexandre Gallery website (NOTE: There is a show for Lois at the Alexandre Gallery that ends tomorrow, so if you’re in the area – stop in before it’s over!:

Lois Dodd was born in Montclair, New Jersey in 1927. From 1945-1948 she attended The Cooper Union in New York. In 1952 she was one of five artists to establish the Tanager Gallery, where she exhibited until 1962. From 1971 to 1992, Dodd taught at Brooklyn College, and has, since 1980, served on the Board of Governors of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She is an elected member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and National Academy of Design.
