The Dreams of Artist Yuliya Lanina

Yuliya Lanina An alternative reality, one filled with whimsy, fantasy, femininity and humor. This best describes artist, Yuliya Lanina’s exhibit, Arcadian Rhapsody, currently on display at the Women and Their Work Gallery.

There is still plenty of time to experience Yuliya’s Lanina’s exhibit.  Arcadian Rhapsody  will be on display through January 23 at Women and Their Work Gallery.
