“Raindrops” “I am Galina Lampert, a freelance artist, member of the National Association of Women Artists, and The Art Students League of New York.
I studied graphics, web design, and oil painting
at the School of Visual Arts and the Fashion Institute of Technology. As a member of the Alliance of Queens Artists and a photographer, I participated in a number of exhibits and group shows, including those at the Great Neck Public Library and Queens Mall during the period 1999-2001. Since 2004 I have been attending art classes (oil painting) and participating in art shows at The Art Students League of New York and at The Salmagundi Club. From 2003 through 2012, I have exhibited my works at City Island Art Galleries; Freeport Recreational Center; The Long Island Museum of Art, History and Carriages; The Art Guild of Port Washington; the 8th Annual NOHO NY ArtWalk; and Manhattan Borough President’s Office; Art Gallery at Hudson Guild; Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery.
My photographs and oil paintings have been shown at Long Island public libraries including Valley Stream, Rockville Centre, Elmont, Uniondale, Baldwin, Mineola, Bellmore, Freeport, Merrick, Wantagh, East Meadow, Oceanside, Hewlett-Woodmere, Babylon, Levittown and Manhasset. Eight of my photos have been published in the 2010-2013 Calendars of the Town of Hempstead, Long Island.
My goal is to create artworks that inspire feelings of happiness, calmness and balance. I look for beauty in my creative expression but also uniqueness. While photographing I see objects as a part of my being. each composition conveys my vision of the beauty of nature. My art means to me a world filled with light and bright colors.
For this show, “Printmaking,” I made my images using the monotype technique, which is a printing process. I concentrated more on being creative rather than on technical aspects of printmaking. Monotype became a perfect tool for me to explore improvisation. The result is surprising and unpredictable. The uniqueness of monotype is how the applied ink reflects in the print.”
