SEATTLE, Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Xanthus Communications has announced the addition of Artist Barbi Leifert to its client list. Barbi Leifert's "Dancer's Palette" series will be presented by Lanyon 36 Gallery, 365 West 36th street, New York, NY 10018. Art Opening, Thursday, September 24, 2015, Reception, 6-9pm. Exhibition Dates September 24 to October 24.
The "Dancer's Palette" series is a sophisticated series of paintings that have been inspired by some of the greatest dancers of our times. Ms. Leifert's "Tapography" (Savion Glover); "Brava!" was inspired by the sheer talent of Misty Copeland, and "Joyful Dream" was inspired by the Alvin Ailey Dancers.
Sheri Barnes, Director of Gallerie Amsterdam in Carmel, California, said, "Barbi Leifert's new series, combining dance into her abstracts, is a good example of the energy that rhythmically flows through her work of rich harmonious colors, producing a sense of dynamic movement with emotional impact."
Ms. Leifert, a dancer since the age of three, has observed that when she's creating a painting, she actually has the movement in her body to the extent that she's painting the feeling of the dance and not just the imagery.
A native New Yorker, Barbi Leifert shows her paintings in Malibu, New York, Florida and Seattle.
Gallery Director Sheri Barnes also noted, "When I took Barbi Leifert on board, her show at the Phillips galleries was a sellout."
At the gallery opening, Thursday, September 24, two contemporary dancers will perform a piece choreographed by Barbi Leifert. The Art opening will also be the launch of Barbi Leifert's new book DANCER'S PALETTE - A FUSION OF PAINT AND MOVEMENT.
Barbi Leifert's fall show in NYC promises to be a success, a pas de deux pairing dance and art. For more information please see www.barbileifert.com.
