From the Daily News-Record, posted 2009-06-25:
The Arts Council of the Valley will host the work of Lynda Bostrom at the Darrin-McHone Art Gallery at 311 S. Main St. In conjunction with First Fridays Downtown, the show opens from 5-7 p.m. on July 3.
The exhibition includes works from “Loss and Learning” and “Conversations and Speech.” Through ceremonial pieces and large paintings, Bostrom’s art reveals her per-sonal life and inspirations while communicating in a universal manner, organizers say.
A visual artist from the Tampa Bay area, Bostrom graduated from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Fla., before working as the Chief Exhibitions Coordinator of the Art Center of Sarasota.
Bostrom brings a new perspective to the Shenandoah Valley with her unique upbringing and wide range of celebrated skills. Though it is her visual art that will be showcased at the Smith House, Bostrom is also a talented musician with her own album “The Trees Knees and Pretending” (Arkain Records, Richmond).
