We would like to welcome everyone to the reception of Leonard Lehrer: A Retrospective. The exhibit provides a look at some of the many wonderful areas of art that Leonard Lehrer has explored over his career. From printmaking to painting, Lehrer’s work is a culmination of his life experiences. He says in his artist’s statement:
“Through my images I try to comprehend the very nature of my experience. I attempt to address the magic of the arts, the unexpected, the sense of discovery that the adventure of my life has provided for me. From the wonderment of the paradise garden to efforts in addressing great loss, I find that the arts embrace everything. It is pure privilege to be part of this most remarkable language system.”
