The public is welcome to view the exhibition during the hours the building is open.Galmer reveals raw emotions for the viewer through her unique abstracts. She was born to a Jewish family in Moscow and immigrated to Queens with her husband, silver sculptor Michael Galmer. Of her work, Galina says, Each painting I create is a portrait of my soul. Each painting is, therefore, my self-portrait. Being an introvert, it is very difficult to express feelings. They tend to build up and trigger tension. After decades of adulthood, I finally found the way to peace for my soul through art. My emotions became my driving forces. Painting became my poetryI found a safe place for my thoughts and experiences on my canvases. Using colors I developed a sense of greater strength and a new voice for my deepest feelings, fears, and insecurities. Life started to be more colorful and spontaneous. I feel reborn.For more information, please call Judy Vladimir at 718-225-6750 ext. 345 or email jvladimir@commonpointqueens.org
