I am Galina Lampert, a freelance Graphic Artist and a member of The Art Students League of New York, The National Association of Women Artists and the Long Beach Art League. I live on Long Island, in Valley Stream, a place surrounded by beautiful nature with amazing sunsets, pure air and friendly neighbors. The environment provides inspiration to me for many creative and artistic projects. I often include scenes from the neighborhood when painting and designing with digital imagery & photography. I studied Graphic Design at the School of Visual Art and Fashion Institute of Technology.
As a member of AQA, the Alliance of Queens Artists, and a photographer, I participated in a number of exhibits, including those at the Great Neck Public Library, Fleet Bank, 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 Art Club. From 2002 through 2013, I 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 Art Walk; and Manhattan Borough President’s Office; Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery at the Lafayette Street, Gensler Offices (Rockefeller Center). In April 2013 I participated in the Benefit for Homeless from ASL.
My oil paintings have been shown at Long Island public libraries including Rockville Centre, Baldwin, Mineola, Bellmore, Freeport, Merrick, Wantagh, East Meadow, Oceanside, Hewlett-Woodmere, Levittown, Shelter Rock and Manhasset. In October 2013 I had an Exhibit in Sip This Cafe, Valley Stream. Nine of my photos have been published in the 2010 - 2015 Calendars of the Town of Hempstead. In 2014 have been accepted into the 40th Annual Town of Oyster Bay Rotational Art Exhibit Program.
My goal is to create artworks that inspire feelings of happiness, calmness and balance. While painting 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. Through the window of nature I share my impressions - expressed in oil paintings, Mixed Media and Photography.
