Lisa Goren

October 18, 2020 | 11:00-12:00pm
Lisa Goren was born in California and raised in NYC. And yet she has dreamed of Polar landscapes since she was in her teens. Her first trip took her to Antarctica where she was inspired and captivated by the landscape. Later travels to Iceland, Alaska, increased her love for the Polar Regions. Her watercolors show an unfamiliar landscape in a new light by using vibrant colors and taking risks with different surfaces. Her works create questions about the nature of abstraction and our planet as many of her pieces are representations of unfamiliar, threatened terrains.

Mark J. Stock

Mark J. Stock is an artist, scientist, and programmer. His work explores the tension between the natural world and its simulated counterpart, between organic and inorganic, digital and analog, and structure and fluid.

Meredith Gisness

“I look to the world around me to discover it’s beauties in the details. Whether it is through the lens of my camera, a quiet paddle across the pond or letting ephemera pass through my fingers; my delight is found in the shapes, textures, colors, marks, and sounds of my experience."

Karen Lee Sobol

Artist, author, architect, and advocate, Karen Lee Sobol explores our spiritual and physical realms. In many media, her art celebrates nature and human nature. Her memoir—Twelve Weeks: An Artist’s Story of Cancer, Healing, and Hope—is illustrated with her art and helps save lives around the world.
