"Reflections of the Soul," an exhibition of the oil paintings of New Jersey resident Liron Sissman, will be on display at the Geary Gallery, 576 Boston Post Road, Darien, through September.

Sissman's oil paintings have been featured in shows throughout the country.

An elected Fellow of the American Artists Professional League, Sissman's paintings are owned by institutional collectors nationwide, as well as individuals on three continents. Her work has won multiple awards and has been written about extensively.

Her art was the subject of a 40-minute television interview on PKRG-TV, and her painting entitled "Hudson River at Boscobel" appears in the major motion picture, "Something Borrowed," starring Kate Hudson.

"My landscapes, like my flowers, are not merely intended to reflect nature, but rather to project an inner reflection, a metaphorical journey," Sissman said. "I admire the intensity of emotions found in the works of the Expressionists. Like them, I, too, mix my soul with my paints. However, I strive to be subtle in my expression of the intense."

Sissman has had selected shows at the Newington-Cropsey Museum in Hastings-on Hudson, N.Y.; the National Arts Club and the Salmagundi Club in New York; the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, N.J.; and the Donald B. Palmer Museum in Springfield, N.J.

She also has many selected collections at hospitals and corporate offices.

The gallery is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. For information, visit www.gearygallery.com or call 203-655-6633.
