The Geoffrey Young Gallery is proud to present "Encore Niche," a two person show opening October 6, 2007, featuring oil paintings and works on paper by Liam Everett and Zohar Lazar.

From New York City, Liam Everett makes small and medium size paintings that explore the disparate imagery that appears to him as he's in the act of working the oil paint into the canvas. Any thing in the natural world might turn up in a painting, as well as architecture and sensuous mood. A poet in paint, he is vulnerable and eager to see what his process will yield. The natural world is not so much quoted as it is embodied in his breathless color sense and sophisticated brushwork.

Zohar Lazar lives in Kinderhook, NY. A master of gouache, and a veteran of oil paint on canvas, he will be represented by both media. His silhouettes are legendary. His compact stories are filled with ambiguous delight, and smoldering desire.

There will be a reception for the artists on October 6, from 5:30-7:30, to which all are welcome.

Gallery hours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 11-5PM.
