A Feast for the Eyes

Posted on

We spent the last weekend listening to a wonderful string quartet playing Brahams and Shostakovich(thanks for the tickets Dad!), visiting used bookstores, antique shops, and the Center for Art & Education. A new art show was opening that weekend and we were privileged to attend. We found a feast for the eyes. This work is absolutely incredible and beautiful and breath-taking. The artist, Christa Nishmuta, was kind enough to allow us to take pictures. I hope you will enjoy!

“I like to think I use my art to connect with people, the places they go, loved ones, memories, or simply pictures in creative spaces that are pleasing to look at. I usually paint because a person inspires me and I think of them while I paint. That painting is an expression of that emotional connection. I think we are all created with these connections and art provides us with an imaginary place to share.” –Christa Nishmuta

Isn’t her work gorgeous!? I just love it! Her work includes acrylic on canvas and pen&ink drawing. If your interested in a print or a painting I will be happy to put you in contact with Christa. Just leave me a comment with your email address.

    I am Christa’s aunt and I went to her art show. Little did I know of the depth of her talent. I missed her first art show and have seen only a few family pictures of her artwork.

    I was very impressed with her paintings. I am glad you saw them and enjoyed them as I did. This was a lovely review and presentation of her show. What an honor you gave her.
    Thank you.
