— an announcement from Atria Darien
The public is invited to a reception for the two artists from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept 7 at Atria Darien.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Artwork is for sale.
Liron Sissman is an internationally collected, Stamford based, professional artist. Her landscapes, like her flowers, are not merely intended to reflect nature but rather to project an inner reflection, a metaphorical journey. Her luminous oil on copper paintings will be included in this exhibit.
Liron’s art is collected by individuals on three continents and by organizations nationwide. She is an elected fellow of the American Artists Professional League. Sissman’s art was featured in the Warner Bros. film, “Something Borrowed,” starring Kate Hudson.
Sissman is the founder of www.ArtistAdvisory.com which promotes the success of visual artists working in all mediums and styles. She is also the author of Getting YOUR Art into Corporate Collections: Why it pays, How to do it, Who to Contact, an ebook available online.
Her husband, Dr. Steven Labkoff, is a Stamford-based photographer focusing on new and innovative perspectives. His photography interests include landscapes and nature, with a focus on time-lapse aerial, and night photography.
He seeks to bring new perspectives to his audience — subjects shot from different angles, lighting and from non-obvious points of view. His sunsets, moon and star fields are a haunting reminder of the infinite possibilities of life and the universe.
Labkoff is also a cardiologist who works at Perdue Pharma.
