The Gallery @ MSASS Features Lolita Wilson

Lolita Wilson's Artwork

Exhibit Dates: July 1, 2007 - September 7, 2007.

The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences is hosting an exhibition by Lolita Wilson. Comprised of bold lines and bright splashes of color, Lolita Wilson’s paintings conjure up images of exotic lands and timelessness. Yet other pieces bring the viewer back to more familiar surroundings—a baby, stretching cats, and a variety of common objects arranged in still-life sketches. Starting around age eight, Wilson, received training at the Cleveland’s Cooper School of Art and East Technical High School where she studied drawing, design and commercial art. Her training includes learning computer animation and studying art history with a strong emphasis on painting at Cuyahoga Community College.

The following year, Lolita started her collection of paintings All Shades of the Blues, which was displayed at the Cleveland Clinic Employee’s Art Expo. Other exhibits include showing at the Enclave Café in Willoughby, Akeena Health and Beauty Spa in Euclid, a group exhibition at the Hodge Live/Work Studios, and presently at Artist Review Today in the Galleria. Through her affiliation with Hodge Arts and Culture, Wilson conducts art therapy workshops to neighborhood children and has done commercial art for organizations and in the greater Cleveland area.
