An artist’s reception will be held Thursday, Oct. 24, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. More than two dozen of his drawings will be included in the exhibit. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. The exhibit is open during gallery hours, Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“Otto Lichtsinn’s drawings are extremely moving and enigmatic works that draw you into his world and cause you to feel the real emotional content,” said Marc Mannheimer, NECC art professor and coordinator of the ArtSpace. “He creates layered works with endless lines that at first seem to be abstractions until ones sees the figures, faces and bodies emerge. His drawings can be small and complex works that are seemingly puzzles to be deciphered. Others are quite large and a bit more visually obvious but always equally detailed. Lichtsinn is able to reach the viewer on a very intimate and visceral level.”
He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Chester College of New England and a Master of Fine Arts from the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
He recently exhibited in the Master of Fine Arts Exhibition – New Hampshire Institute of Art, Manchester, N.H.
Northern Essex Department of Art & Design offers many courses in fine art and design leading to an Associate Degree in General Studies: Art & Design.
