Artist of the Month: Sally Lipson Lebwohl

The art of Sally Lipson Lebwohl will be on display in the lobby gallery throughout the month of August 2018.

Artist’s statement:

“I have been drawing for most of my life, and working in pastels over the past decade has allowed me to combine my interests in pure pigment and paper.”

Sally aims to capture a moment of light in each of her paintings and to make work that is gestural and immediate.  She is perpetually challenged by new subjects and palettes, finding emotional energy in interiors and comfort in the landscape.

Some of Sally’s favorite moments working en plein air have been in familiar spots throughout the Berkshires.  Whether in her car, on her bike, or on foot, she travels with a Winsor and Newton field box of watercolors, a small notebook, and a brush.

While living in New Jersey and Stockbridge over the past 15 years, Sally has participated in many juried exhibitions and a few of her own shows.  She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of New Jersey and received Best in Show in 2017.

Sally has been a summer resident of Stockbridge since childhood.  This show is her first in Berkshire County.  She has a bachelor’s degree in studio art from Connecticut College, and has worked in architecture firms and art galleries.  Sally teaches art workshops for youth in her community and co-curates monthly exhibitions at the independent bookstore in her year-round hometown of Madison, New Jersey.

“I feel most myself on days when I take the time to look and to paint.”

A reception with the artist will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, August 3, 2018.
