Art House Gallery is proud to present the work of Lane O’Shea. Seen recently in Art House’s group exhibition, ‘Lost, Then Found’ as part of the 29th Annual Jersey City Art & Studio Tour in October 2019, Ms. O’Shea was chosen for a solo exhibition in the Art House Gallery that will display works from two complementary collections, the Meditation Collection and the Atmospheric Collection.  (Above: Seaside Snow Squall, Boardwalk Icicles)

From Ms. O’Shea, "The Meditation Collection is inspired by my interest in mindfulness and meditation. I hope that the pieces will serve as a reminder to take a few moments each day to quiet the mind against challenges, to restore balance among the priorities of your day, and to be present in every moment. The Atmospheric Collection is inspired by my interest in the uncontrollable natural forces in our lives. I hope that the pieces will serve as a reminder to appreciate these forces, to enjoy their beauty, respect and wonder at their power, and to appreciate how we fit into the balance." (Right: Estasi)
