About the Artist:
Leah Lopez, a woman of talents and a heart of passion has turned many corners, in her 38 years. In every instance the artist within comes charging through. In 2007, she moved to New York City to see what lay in store for a young abstract realist, developing a body of still life in the chiaroscuro manner. It’s nine years later, and her passion for chiaroscuro still life is stronger than ever. What’s more is it’s been spilling over into works of figurative art that carry the same drama, mystique and narrative.
Among other interests is, Leah’s dedication to a growing number of individuals wanting to learn how to incorporate beautiful artwork and creativity into their own lifestyle. Leah feels strongly about community and shows this by supporting art organizations that offer valuable opportunities for artists today and work diligently to keep the torch lit for generations to come. These are organizations such as, the Salmagundi Club of New York and American Women Artists, where she was recently recognized with the title, Master Signature Artist, an honor reserved for an elite class of professional artists.
Next month, from September 23 – November 13, all will have a chance to see the Featured Artwork, “A Prayer for Compassion (Guan Yin)”, in person when it is on display at the American Women Artists 2016 Annual Master & Signature Member show and National Juried Exhibition. This year, the show is being held in Bennington, VT, at the Bennington Center for the Arts. The show’s reception is on September 23rd from 5:00-8:00 PM. Leah Lopez will be present at the reception and for the week’s events, ready to talk about art.
