The Antreasian Gallery presents “Short Stories,” a collection of contemporary realist paintings by artist Susan La Mont.  A reception open to the public will be held from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. on December 2, and coincides with Baltimore’s First Friday art walks.

Aptly named, the show features people in both ordinary and unusual situations. The viewer is invited to speculate about the intent; in fact, La Mont encourages it as a kind of interactivity, noting that we are “hard wired” to try to make sense out of the situations we encounter. In the past she has been delighted to overhear viewers spin incredible tales about the goings-on in the paintings, some of them completely counter to her original meaning.The show features both small and large works painted in heightened, but not quite photographic realism. La Mont was selected by area art critic F. Lennox Campello as the Best New Realist of the 2009 Artomatic show.

Antreasian’s regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Additional information and images can be seen at www.antreasiangallery.com. Inquiries can be made at 410-235-4420 during business hours.
