Starting on March lst and running through April 30th there will be a wonderful virtual art display hosted by the Milton Public Library to show the work of painter Elizabeth Lazeren. This exhibit will inspire us all as we enjoy some beautiful and colorful landscapes and more. This artist uses “memory, experience, and imagination. She works toward paintings that have a clarity of mood but a vague sense of place. Choosing elements that are signature components of her work, she distills a painting, working towards the goal of emotional and intellectual clarity. Her paintings are in collections from Los Angeles to Newfoundland to the Hart Senate Building in Washington, D.C.”
Ms. Lazeren creates many images of the sea. She was trained at the Harford Art School, and at Wesleyan University, and has had several juried shows. These shows include the Copley Biennial Marine Show, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, the Providence Art Club, the Cape Cod Art Association, and many more. She received an invitation to display one of her paintings at the Cape Cod Museum of Art for both 2019 and 2020, and was an Artist-in-Residence in 2014 at the Weir National Historic Site in Wilton, CT. Her work is displayed at the Hart Senate Offices of former Senator Lieberman in Washington, D.C. to receive the “President’s Award” in 2011-2013, and she has received lots of other prestigious honors for her paintings. Elizabeth’s art has also been published in Spectator Magazine, Provincetown Banner, Who’s Who in American Art, The Hartford Courant, and others. She was awarded the “Fine Art Studio Online Feature Artist” by Cape Cod Life Magazine – Design in 2013 as well.
This is what the artist has to say about her craft: “I live in Truro, Cape Cod and have been painting since I was 12 years old. I have taught painting to all ages and I continue to seek out workshops from masters that will help me become a better painter. The outer Cape is where I find the seascapes, art, fellow painters, maritime history and support system that influences my work. Living in this beautiful, seafaring place, I am inspired by its history, environment and the people. I use memory, experience, and imagination when painting….I will begin by making several loose value sketches before I set up my canvas. My process at the easel begins with thinking that less is more and so I distill an image while constructing it in my mind and then on the canvas…”
