American art at Haus on 24th

While the midterms might be over, increased tensions stemming out of current national politics are putting people on edge. Artist Lisa Bostwick wanted to find a way to cool things down, and is doing so with showings of some her latest pieces at Haus Coffee on 24th Street. Her pieces, which she calls Long Game and Long View are a contemporary homage to Jasper Johns.

“It’s a scary time to be an American, but I want to put something positive out there,” Bostwick said.

The artist said she’ll be available for showings Saturday and Sunday. Her art will be on display until the end of the year. More information at her website.
