Exhibition: Largely Landscapes

Karpeles Museum Fine-Art Photographs by Lois Lipper
Opening Saturday, October 2, 2010-November 28

Lois Lipper combines a sensitive appreciation of nature with a gift for artistic expression in her powerfully composed photographs. A native of New York City, she moved to Orange County ten years ago and fell in love with its scenery, which became the original focus of her photography. She has since expanded her range to include striking images of man-made structures, as well as dramatic natural vistas, throughout the region, and she has traveled to New England, Montana, Wyoming, California, the Smoky Mountains, Alaska, Peru, Costa Rica, and Newfoundland, Canada, in search of dramatic
subjects for her photography.

Ms. Lipper was a fine arts major at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. She has since studied sculpture at Graphic Search in Philadelphia and has participated in several photography workshops. An active member of the Westside Photography Club of New York City, she has presented her work at Lever House in New York City and at the Garrison Art Center, the Walkill River Arts Gallery in Montgomery, the Howland Center in Beacon, the Women Artists of the Hudson Valley in Newburgh, the Kendridge Farm Arts Show in Cornwall, and Orange County Community College in Middletown. She won the first and 3rd prizes in photography at the 2008 Orange Arts Show in Sugar Loaf. Solo art exhibitions of her photographs have taken place at the YMCA 63rd St. in 1998 and the Lightzones Gallery in 1999 in New York City, as well as at the Washingtonville Art Society Gallery in 2005.

The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception at the Karpeles Museum on Saturday, October 23, from 1-4 p.m.
