Artist talk with Sandra Lerner

George E. Foster gallery


Sandra Lerner was a resident at the Wurlitzer Foundation in 1978 and 1989. Her paintings are investigations of the natural world through pattern, repetition, and interplay of opposites. The surfaces evolve from many applications and manipulations of paint and plaster. Lerner will be in the gallery speaking about her work and experiences with the Wurlitzer Foundation.
Established in 1954, The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico is the oldest artist residency program west of the Mississippi. For over sixty years, the program has brought hundreds of visual artists, writers and composers to Taos. Through grants to painters, poets, sculptors, writers, playwrights, screenwriters, composers, photographers and filmmakers, of national and international origin, many resident artists fell in love with Taos and remained in the area after their residency had ended. Since the 1950’s with the first grantee, Agnes Martin, the number of artists who have been introduced to Taos by The Wurlitzer has grown, with contributions by Takayama, Stroh, and Dasburg to name just a few.
Admission is $10/general admission and free to Museum members.
