The Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College starts its new season with a retrospective of works by the artist known as Biala.

Biala: Vision and Memory is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s career and incorporates 50 painting, collages and drawings.

Janice Biala, 1903-2000, was well known for her charming interiors, still-lifes and landscapes. Her canvases are informed by her fascinating life in Paris with author Ford Madox and her friendships with members of the New York School. The exhibit also includes a 1994 interview filmed in her studio.

An opening reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A series of lectures will follow throughout September and October.
