Artist Jennifer Lugris poses with her mixed media work “Marriage” at her art opening at the Maturango Museum Friday night. The work is a portrait of Lugris’ husband and features a reflector and painted wood as part of the design. The work is an example of her sense of humor as an artist. She said part of the idea behind it was to “make the rest of the painting so wild that you don’t notice the reflector.”

The show is called “Offering a Possibility.” Lugris’ work includes mixed media and acrylic paintings which reflect her experience as a first-generation American with roots from North Korea, South Korea, Argentina, Spain and Uruguay. She recently completed a Master of Fine Arts at UC Santa Barbara and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rutgers.

The exhibit will be on display in the museum’s Coso Gallery for the next two months.
