Sandra Lerner's paintings are investigations
of the natural world through pattern, repetition, and interplay
of opposites. The surfaces evolve from many applications and manipulations
of paint and plaster. The resulting images are abstract in their
use of space and color but have specific links to organic forms.
Sandra Lerner graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine
Arts and the Philadelphia College of Art and has been a professional
artist for twenty years. In addition to producing her own works,
she is involved in working with and for artists. She was a founding
member and is presently a trustee of the Foundation for Today's
Art which creates opportunities for artists to
show their work. Since moving to Taos in 1989 she has served on the advisory
board and art committee of the Harwood Foundation Museum.
