The Passage Gallery at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center at Northern Virginia Community College’s Alexandria Campus is pleased to present Memories of Home an exhibition of paintings by Lisa Noble.

The exhibition will run from November 10, 2018 through January 13, 2019 with a public reception on Saturday afternoon, November 17, 2019 from 2-4PM.

Lisa’s light filled paintings represent places of her past and personal history. Her paintings are iconic representations of her efforts to map out the context of her childhood and early development and in the process the works become universal symbols of memory. The Tupperware pitcher on the kitchen cabinet, the wash cloth carefully hung but resting at an angle, the patterned wallpaper in the bedroom are memory imprints of her notion of home but also the conditions of presence and absence and reflections upon personal growth. The work of Hopper is called to mind when viewing this works but also the 19th century painters Vuillard and Bonnard.

Lisa Noble began her formal artistic training at the Alberta College of Art & Design. She moved to the United States in 1997 to complete her BFA at the Corcoran College of Art & Design in Washington, D.C. During each year of study Noble’s efforts were recognized with the Dean’s Merit and Corcoran Scholarships.

Noble has exhibited in Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, New York, Connecticut, Florida, and California. Her work is included in many private collections across the country. She has been recognized in numerous publications including The Washington Post, The Washington CityPaper, The New York Times, Miami New Times, Miami Sun Post, D.C. Pulse Magazine, and Studio Visit Magazine.

The Passage Gallery is located on the second level of the Schlesinger Center. The artists’ reception is free and open to the public. The galleries at the Schlesinger Center are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and during concert hall performances and public events.
