Lisa Ahronee Golub, East Africa Hippos Basking in the Mud
Out of East Africa is an exhibition of wildlife portraits and paintings depicting the culture in Rwanda and Tanzania.  In 2015, artist Lahrgo had the incredible opportunity to travel and visit both countries, where her daughter was living at the time. From brushes with giant silverbacks while gorilla trekking, to close encounters with elephants and wildebeests on safari, Lisa was in awe of the natural beauty she witnessed. Her paintings in Out of East Africa are inspired by the photographs she took there.
A portion of the proceeds will go towards scholarships for students at the G.S. Kinihira School in Rwanda.
