What better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than to spotlight one of our gallery’s own artists who is receiving accolades for her work across the country. Lisa Gleim is an award-winning pastel artist and a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts. She was named Women’s Artist of the Year by the Atlanta Branch of the National League of Pen Women in 2016. This past year, the Booth Western Art Museum acquired her painting “The Secret Keepers” as part of their permanent collection after hosting American Women Artists: Making Their Mark. Gleim is keen to represent the beauty of light and its impact on her subjects. She is drawn to the coastal areas of the Carolinas where her family spent much time during her childhood, and the mountains of Montana, where she and her husband have a second home.In this body of work, one senses her deep attachment to nature and habitats. “Morning Unfolding”, and “Still Water” are just two extraordinary examples of her ability to capture the beauty, and sensitivity of our natural world.
