Local Landscapes

Lisa Learner painting

Lisa Learner

November 14 - December 20, 2017

Lisa Learner loves local landscapes. Her paintings portray the train stations, woods, beaches and buildings of the community that she inhabits. She includes family, friends, strangers, or herself in her paintings, but the subject matter is always the light, the shadows, and the sense of space.

Her latest paintings are painted with oil paint on prepared pieces of heavy watercolor paper. These are ‘floated’ on linen-covered boards, and surrounded by linen-covered mats and hand-carved gilded frames created by her husband, Richard Wagner. Her earlier paintings are usually painted on large, traditional stretched canvases.

Learner has spent most of her life in the Philadelphia area. She received her BFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple and her MFA from Penn, where she studied painting under Neil Welliver. Her paintings have been seen in numerous venues in the Philadelphia area including the Art Alliance, Philadelphia City Hall, the Wayne Art Center, and the Woodmere Museum. She has taught at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Tyler School of Art, Penn, Cabrini, PAFA, the Main Line Art Center, and most recently Delaware County Community College.
