Pigment Gallery at Mellwood Art Center is showing new work by painter Debra Lott alongside a selection from six previous series of her paintings.

Lott primarily paints women and her work endeavors to bring recognition to the preconceived notions about a women’s body and what damage that can do to relationships, as well as how seeing beyond those notions can free women and men from confusion.

“Like most artists, I’m just responding to my world,” wrote Lott about her work. “My recent figurative oil paintings reflect our society’s love and obsession of self and the uncertainty of a world where the virtual and authentic collide and confuse.”

WHEN: Through April 20. Artist reception, 6-8 p.m., Friday, March 31.

WHERE: Pigment Gallery, Mellwood Art Center, 1860 Mellwood Ave.

COST: Free admission. Gallery hours, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
