About the Speaker

Lisa Lebofsky is a nomadic plein air painter, collaborating with nature and people. She paints the susceptibility of nature, correlating its restlessness with our own human vulnerabilities. Lebofsky finds inspiration by traveling extensively, often to remote parts of the world, in order to immerse herself in different environments and cultures. Regions visited include Antarctica, Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, and The Maldives.

Lisa Lebofsky has her BFA in metals from SUNY New Paltz, and MFA in painting from New York Academy of Art. She is currently based in New York City and is director of DFN Projects. In addition to solo and group exhibitions, her work has been exhibited in museums and universities such as Savannah College of Art and Design, GA; New Bedford Whaling Museum, MA; Shelburne Museum, VT; Lehman College, NY; Pima Air and Space Museum, AZ; and El Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico.

She is the recipient of several awards including: Bronx Recognizes Its Own (BRIO) Grant, and residencies in: Terra Nova National Park, Newfoundland; New Bedford Whaling Museum, MA; Saltonstall, Ithaca, NY; Tilting Air, Fogo Island, Newfoundland; Cuttyhunk, MA; Jentel, WY; Shenandoah National Park, VA.

Her work has been published in American Art Collector, New York Magazine, Huffington Post, Poets and Artists Magazine, The Stone Canoe Journal, and The Figure: Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture by Rizzoli, among others.
