ARCHIVE / THE ART OF JULIE WARREN & LORRAINE IVERSON
AT THE REP—A two-artist show opens Saturday at the downstairs Gallery at the Lyceum and runs through March 4. The downtown exhibition showcases the paintings of San Diego’s Julie Warren and Lorraine Iverson.
The exhibit runs concurrently with “In the Wake,” a new play at the adjacent San Diego Repertory Theatre. The Gallery at the Rep is open for viewing Tues.-Sun. 12 noon – 6 pm and pre-show.
If you’re interested in viewing the art and taking in the play, the Rep is offering friends of Warren and Iverson a special discount of $10 per ticket. Put in the promotional code of ARTE when purchasing online or over the phone.
A reception for the artists will be held Sun. Feb. 19, 12:30-2 pm, prior to the Sunday matinee.

Julie Warren is a local painter, printmaker, and graphic designer. She finds inspiration in everything from political plays to sunlight on a blade of a grass. Her work is exhibited locally and held in many private collections. Her works for this play are “Who You Gonna Believe?,” a series of digital illustrations depicting public figures as side show freaks and “The View From Here,” paintings in window-like structures framing a fractured cityscape where different vantage points offer changing views. www.juliewarren.net
Lorraine Iverson’s (aka Rain) paintings reflect how she views her world - deeply layered - sometimes with dark secrets, sometimes with whimsy. Her solo exhibitions resemble group shows because her body of work seems a bit schizophrenic, as she never feels compelled to paint the same thing twice. She has been influenced by her teachers, her travels, but mostly her heart.
