Sean Christopher Gallery Ohio | 815 N. High St. Ste. H

Eva Antebi-Lerman is currently an Athens, Ohio-based abstract oil painter enrolled in the PhD Clinical Psychology program at Ohio University. With her creations, the artist portrays the transitory aspects of nature and explores giving up control, often painting with one planned element such as a color palette or rough composition and working from there, or painting with dirty brushes to challenge herself to react to the colors that appear on the canvas. 

Eva’s solo exhibition begins with an opening reception on Saturday, April 6,  to take place in concert with the Short North Arts District’s monthly Gallery Hop.
