The Licht Exhibition is a culmination of Art work painted by Lise while living in the USA. Each work includes the symbol of light in a specific, but varied approach.
The location of this exhibition was not an ordinary gallery. Through her connections, Lise was invited to exhibit her body of work named "Licht" at Merritt's Bar & Grill in Chapel Hill. Now famous for it's delicious BLT sandwiches, Merritt's Bar & Grill used to be an old gas station, which was transformed into a popular local restaurant. People from all backgrounds would pop in and pick up their favorite treat.
The opening night of the Licht exhibition was held on Valentine's Day of 2013, celebrated with special entertainment from local Artists and delicious treats. The atmosphere was light and it truly was an evening filled with friendship, enjoyed by all who were present. A number of the artworks were sold including Licht, Tree of Life and Running.
