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.
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.
The Art League Gallery is inside the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Studio 21.
The Art League is a nonprofit founded in 1954. It is one of the oldest and largest of its kind to support visual artists. The Art League is known for offering education and outreach programs to the surrounding community.
