Lisa L. Sears is a fine artist creating paintings and drawings in water-based media on paper and canvas. She earned her BFA in studio art at the School of Visual Arts, University of North Texas, with additional painting and photography study at University of Texas and mixed media painting at Art New England through MassArt. Her work has been described as symbolic, mythic, emotional, colorful, dream-like and nightmarish, which mixed all together might equal the moniker “whimsical depression.”
Dedicated to making art available to the community, Sears has been involved in Malden public arts projects including several years with Windows Art Malden, the Switchbox Project, “Pictures at an Exhibition Reframed” (a free piano concert and art exhibit organized by Malden Creates), and was a recipient of a Malden Cultural Council grant for “Lines Connecting Lines”— a collaboration between area poets and artists—which she created and curated. Additionally, she was involved in the workings of Malden Pops Up, and participated in its later restructuring as The Gallery Inc., serving as Exhibit Coordinator and Curator for six-months. She has also enjoyed exhibiting her work locally at Malden Public Library and UMA.
Sears is delighted to be involved once again in Malden arts with The Gallery@57.
