In visual art 

Elizabeth Marin says that the painting process for her never begins with an idea, but with a color. So she fills her "Marinscapes" with shades of color in her signature "blotchy" pointillism until they take on a heightened calligraphic sense. Marin also works in abstract, where her work becomes more instinctual, and where she can indulge her abhorrence of symmetry (see "Carnival" pictured). See her new work Feb. 23-March 30 at Tyndall Galleries in Durham. There will be an opening reception Feb. 23 from 7 to 9 p.m. Preview the paintings at www.tyndallgalleries.com. Call 683-8489 for details.

"They do look a little disturbing, don't they?" says Anya Belkina, when asked about her new series of acrylic paintings. A native of Moscow who recently joined the visual art faculty at Duke University, Belkina says that the title of her exhibition, Lost, has many meanings, but one of them refers to losing someone to death. "Being a Russian, that's no surprise," she told the Indy. "It's a common theme for many Russian works, because my country has suffered so much tragedy." Belkina recently lost both her uncle and grandmother in Russia. Her grandmother died Sept. 9. "Her death was compounded by the tragedies here and the fact that I couldn't get to Russia to say goodbye to her," Belkina says. See her disturbing works in the gallery of the Duke Institute of the Arts on East Campus through March 22. Call 660-3356 for details.
