Galina Galmer Art Exhibition @ Commonpoint Queens Sam Field Center
Nov 15 2019 – Jan 1 2020 all-day
Galina Galmer Art Exhibition @ Commonpoint Queens Sam Field Center | New York | United States

Join us for the debut exhibition of artist Galina Galmer who will display her work at the Sam Field Center from November 15, 2019 through January 1, 2020. The public is welcome to view the exhibition during the hours the building is open.

Galmer reveals raw emotions for the viewer through her unique abstracts. Of her work, Galina says, “Each painting I create is a portrait of my soul. Each painting is, therefore, my self-portrait. Being an introvert, it is very difficult to express feelings. They tend to build up and trigger tension. After decades of adulthood, I finally found the way to peace for my soul through art. My emotions became my driving forces. Painting became my poetry…I found a safe place for my thoughts and experiences on my canvases. Using colors I developed a sense of greater strength and a new voice for my deepest feelings, fears, and insecurities. Life started to be more colorful and spontaneous. I feel reborn.”
