Ille Arts in Amagansett presents a solo exhibit by Sag Harbor artist Edwina Lucas titled “Above and Below,” opening this weekend.

The show marks Lucas’s first solo exhibit at the gallery. The artist began showing at the Main Street space, owned by Sara de Luca, two years ago. Her first exhibit in 2017 focused on East End landscape — large oils on panels that featured green lush woods and trees, magnolias, and foggy hidden paths, leading to lakes and clearings.

The artist now focuses on all environments surrounding her. From a perspective of below the water, she paints light reflecting on the surface of a pool. Her painting “In The Flow” depicts two girls swimming in a pool, lit from above, their skin glowing from the sun reflected on the bottom of the pool.

Above ground, she focuses her attention to spring and summer collections that include flora and fauna. In the show are two large charcoal drawings — one features a large school of fish, and the other a flock of birds in flight.

The show opens on Saturday, July 20, with a reception from 5 to 7 PM. The exhibit will run through August 13. The gallery is open seven days a week. For more info, visit www.illearts.com.
