The Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center is excited to open its latest art show Chroma, a collection of work by George Mason University graduate student Malia Alana “Lonnie” Pauls. Chroma will be on display in the second-level Passage Gallery of the Schlesinger Center Feb. 3 through March 12 with an artist’s reception scheduled from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11.
 
During the Schlesinger Center’s open call in fall 2016, Lonnie submitted a proposal for the opportunity to show her work in one of the three galleries at the center, and her proposal was accepted. Lonnie is a chromesthetic abstract painter, meaning her paintings are heavily-inspired by music. While working on her paintings, she often listens to different genres of music, allowing the sounds to impact and direct her creative process. In previous years, Lonnie has participated in art shows with other artists; however, Chroma is her very first solo show.
 
The artist’s reception is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. For additional information, please see the press release on NOVA’s website.
