HOUGHTON -- The Rozsa Gallery welcomes artist Leopoldo Cuspinera Madrigal, in an exhibition of beautiful paintings on paper that evoke dreamlike landscapes and shadowed, industrial vistas. Titled "Landscape: A Memorial Artifact," Madrigal’s show opens with a reception in the Rozsa Gallery from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. TONIGHT, Friday, Jan. 17.

The exhibition will run through Saturday, Feb. 16, 2014, and is free and open to the public.

According to Madrigal, "Landscape is communicated to humans personally, through every sense. Its speech goes beyond time and space, but also tells about the past, present, and future through marks, footprints, or injuries. Landscape is related to humans in multiple ways: It has been the tangible basis for our activities and the intangible basis for our lives. Human lives find a certain logic and meaning from memory. Landscape is an inexhaustible source of memory, reminding us that the present is the result of the past and that the future depends largely on the marks, footprints, or injuries we leave today embodied on this immense memorial artifact -- the landscape."

Rozsa gallery hours are M-F, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. For more details, please visit the Rozsa Center Web site.
