"Lift Off, A Group Exhibition of Works with Space Themes"
2006-03-23 until 2006-06-30
anderbilt Museum and Planetarium
Centerport, NY, USA United States of America

New York artist Debra Reilly is participating in a group art show entitled "Lift Off" at the Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium in Centerport on Long Island, NY opening on 23 March 2006 and remaining on view through the summer. The art exhibit is a special planetarium space exhibition of recent art works by several Long Island area artists themed around the solar system, the the open sky beyond earth. The title of the piece, an acrylic painting, included by Debra Reilly is OUR SYSTEM.

Debra tells of the collaboration between herself and her 11 year old son Dylan after he walked into the room where she was working and critiqued her preliminary charcoal sketch for the painting. Debra had originally sketched the planets in a straight line in more of an abstract expression. After Dylan pointed out many planetary facts she said " my perception of the planets was spinning in orbits to the point that the sketch really had to be redone" --- with the different orbits in mind Debra shows the sun as the brightest star and core of our solar system effectively surrounded by the planets thanks to Dylan --- the painting, appropriately named "Our System" shows the planets abstractly represented in bright hues amidst a colorful impressionisticly styled sky somewhat akin to a Monet with deeper contrasts. Debra Ann says that Dylan turned out to be a great influence on this piece, as he also referred to the missing asteroid belt surrounding the inner planets that now circles around them. Good for kids and adults.
