Tales from Ott

Laila Elmanfaa June 25 - 30 Open daily: 11 - 6pm
Think of ‘Tales from Ott’ as a little bluebell-lined fairy path through a realm of gritty fantasy- a glance into somewhere deep, dark, and full of secrets. With oil paintings inspired by the drama of the Renaissance and their accompanying stories and poems, the entire universe of Ott and all of its written works have been fabricated in the crucible of Leila’s rampant imagination. ‘Tales from Ott’ lives in oil paintings, locally printed digital art, traditional drawings, and original works of literature. As a 21 year old painter and poet from the faraway land of Philadelphia, one of Leila’s goals as an artist is to provide an island of pure fantasy to take refuge in, from the manic paces of real life.
