Theo Ganz Studio presents an exhibition of work by Linda Shere entitled, Stop Talking, I Can Hear You; Paintings, Drawings and Diary of Joan of Arc.  The public is invited to the opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11. The exhibition runs from Oct. 11 through Nov. 3.

The artist started the series after visiting the statues of Joan of Arc in Reims Cathedral and Notre Dame. Shortly afterwards, her younger sister became very ill and she stopped painting after her sister’s untimely death. Shere states: “This work marks a return to both painting and to figurative work. In revisiting what had first caught my interest in Joan, I now looked at her life through the filter of my sister’s as someone struggling with her fate.”
