Foundation faculty member Lydia Martin has created a new series of paintings, called “Loteria”, which will be exhibited in a one-person show at Chabot Gallery in Providence beginning October 16th. The paintings, inspired by the popular Mexican game Loteria, borrow traditional images from the game, which Lydia has reworked as figure paintings, interiors and still lifes. Her friend and colleague, NESADSU alumna Kseniya Galper (Graphic Design 2003), had a
hand in the project by designing an original set of Loteria cards to serve as labels for the paintings. Until “Loteria” opens in October, you can also see Lydia’s work in a group show at Chabot, called “Chabot in Retrospect”, which runs until September 15th.
