LAUNCH Gallery is proud to present two new landscape painting exhibitions. Echoes of Now features new mono-chromatic and color oil paintings on paper and canvas by mid-career, Los Angeles artist Lynne McDaniel. This series documents her recent ‘artist in residence’ experiences in Vashon Island, WA, New Berlin, NY and Lake Forest, IL. This is Lynne’s second exhibition at LAUNCH Gallery.  Secondly, we are proud to introduce Los Angeles based landscape oil painter Emily Wallerstein and her recent collection of local Los Angeles landmarks and neighborhood haunts titled Surroundings.

Emily Wallerstein

The landscapes that envelop our daily lives metamorphose into memories, etching themselves into the fabric of our hearts and minds as a fleeting tapestry of time and space. Often, we navigate our routines in a state of subconscious oblivion, overlooking the significance of our surroundings. Yet, these seemingly mundane backdrops embed themselves in our psyche, becoming memories of places, feelings, and moments—a map work of our lives.

These views and landmarks, whether vivid or hazy like a dream, encapsulate the essence of our experiences. Each moment, however fleeting, leaves behind an indelible energy, lingering in our consciousness. It is only when our surroundings undergo change or disappearance that we are struck by the pangs of nostalgia, realizing their true significance.

Whether it's the familiar street corner we pass daily or the breathtaking vista a traveler encounters halfway across the world, each locale holds within it the essence of a cherished moment—a snapshot frozen in time. Through "Surroundings," I invite viewers to rediscover the beauty and significance of their own everyday landscapes, transcending physical boundaries to evoke shared emotions and memories.
