The Sandler Center Hosts “Shifting Perspectives” by Lisa Ashinoff, Beginning Feb. 8 through March 11, 2018

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

​The Sandler Center for the Performing Arts is proud to announce that it will host Lisa Ashinoff's exhibit "Shifting Perspectives" beginning Feb. 8.

A native of Virginia Beach, Lisa Ashinoff has permanent collections in Pennsylvania, California, Virginia and Belgium. Her artwork has also been featured in more than 9 group exhibitions.

Inspired by both the family home, built during her childhood, as well as her frequent trips to New York, from which her family originates, Ashinoff found the minimalistic aesthetic of midcentury modern design and city landscapes most appealing. Couple that with inspiration from a house on the side of the road, music, architecture, nature, travel and, most importantly, modern art and you have a recipe for innovation.

Lisa Ashinoff enjoys exploring the relationships between shape, form, color, line, and perspective in her 'Architectural Interpretations.' The vibration of color and cadence of a line are an integral part of her work, and her use of white lines in her art is her way of echoing the need for natural light. While Ashinoff sees the world operating simultaneously with chaos and order, her awareness that they can coexist in art and in life have created an introspective arena for her work.

The exhibit will be on view in the second and third-floor lobbies from Feb. 8 through March 11 during the Sandler Center's normal operating hours: Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; or during any performance at the Sandler Center.

There will be a free artist reception held at the Sandler Center on Wednesday, Feb. 7, from 6 – 8 p.m. The Art Gallery is on the second and third floors in the common areas of the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts.

The role of the Office of Cultural Affairs is to develop the vision and direction of the cultural arts in Virginia Beach, assist and direct the Virginia Beach Arts and Humanities Commission, coordinate the city's Public Art Program, provide contract management for the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, serve as the liaison with Virginia MOCA and the ViBe Creative District, and serve as a resource to local arts and humanities organizations.
