Lofty goals

The other project keeping Lemberg Gallery busy this month is an installation of four of their artists’ works in the 400 Parent St. loft development model in Royal Oak. Paintings by Beverly Fishman, Matthew Penkala and Janet Hamrick, and prints by Susan Goethel Campbell not only finish the space, they enrich it in ways good furniture can’t. Kudos to developer Matthew Hood, architects McIntosh Poris Associates, interior designer Colleen Stickner and home furnisher Ligne Roset for selecting not just real art for a sales model, but having a respected gallery select serious, challenging work that does more than decorate. Interior designers take note — go to the art pros to help you find the best that’s out there. Same advice if you’re furnishing a place on your own. And buy the sofa to match the art.
