Pyrography, writing with fire, is the art of drawing with a heated tool giving the image a unique appearance. Lobner uses this format for images that are enhanced by striking contrasts. Just as black and white photos often have more visual impact than a color version, the brown tones of pyrography create a warmer, subtle effect on the work.
The Exhibit runs from Oct. 7 to Nov. 21 at Bay College West’s Upper Commons. The public is invited to the reception to meet the artist on Tuesday, Oct. 11 in the Lower Commons of Bay College West from 6 to 8 p.m. Refreshments will be served and cellist, Miriam Edwards and violinist, Iris Furlo, will provide music.
