ALEXANDRIA, VA-Visit the Art League Gallery at 105 N. Union St. through Aug. 8 to see the work of mixed media artist Yasmin Bussiere. Her exhibit, Eastern Light, is inspired by her time living in Central Asia.

“Eastern Light is a path that I’ve been on since living in Uzbekistan and traveling along the Silk Road,” said the artist. “It was a great opportunity for me to see one of the most amazing parts of the world. It made such a strong impression.”

Her luminous abstracts transport the viewer to another time and place.

Gold and silver, colors that represent that part of the world are prominent in her pieces. Also referenced are horses, nomads, and architecture – symbols of Asian history.

Register HERE for a virtual conversation with Bussiere on Tuesday, July 20 at 6 p.m. Find out more about the artist HERE.

Exhibitions and events are free and open to the public.

Current hours: Wednesday – Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday Noon to 5 p.m.
