Erv Lewandowski and Mark Beins will share some of the most impressive creations that Michigan has ever seen. Their exhibit is called “Two Artists Sharing Space.”“When you walk in and you’re hit with the white, these pieces are gorgeous,” said Beins about his first look at the completed gallery.What makes this gallery unique is the layout and sizes of the pieces. Lewandowski usually creates smaller pieces, crafted from his colored pencils. Beins gravitates towards larger artwork.“I thought we’d be a nice compliment to one another,” said Lewandowski. “People could roll in and look at his work and then back up and look at mine, look at his, and I thought the small-large combination, walking through the gallery would be just an absolute inviting fit.”The two have a unique bond. Both are Sunrise Side artists. They both focus on capturing the smaller details of nature that are easily overlooked.“What we see in life, whether it be water or land or a speck, a lot of the subjects that I work with, particularly in recent years, are fragments of things in nature,” said Lewandowski. “When you take fragments, those are things people likely will pass over as they walk through woods or look at a stream.”For Erv and Mark, this is an opportunity to inspire curiosity in those that explore their work.“When someone walks out of a gallery and wants to look, wants to observe, and wants to understand more, whether it’s our subject matter or not, that’s my goal,” said Beins.The exhibit opens this Saturday at the Besser Museum. A reception will take place from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Guests can register to win a Lewandowski print. The exhibit runs until April 15th.
