Abandoned factories and crumbling buildings hardly seem the stuff of artistic inspiration, but they are for Lara Ivanovic.

Ivanovic's richly hued and sometimes unsettling pieces are featured in the exhibition. "Abandonment," which opens at New Canaan Library's H. Pelham Curtis Gallery Sunday, June 1, with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m.

Ivanovic's travels in Australia's vast outback provided inspiration for her work.

"I was struck by the eerie, ghostly quality of the barren landscape, inhabited only by abandoned buildings

and rusty cars," she

said.

The series depicts commercial buildings under construction in New York.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Friends of New Canaan Library Art Committee. The curators are Ann Barua and Diane Kerner.
