Gail Lapins Featured in One-Woman Exhibition at WWU

A one-woman exhibition, featuring Gail Lapins, opens Oct. 24 and runs through Nov. 21 in the Cox Gallery of the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts at William Woods University.

The exhibition showcases the expressive figurative paintings of Lapins, an artist from Cambria, Calif. It examines thoughts and memories that are projected as images in one’s mind – visual representations that intrigue the viewer. This fleeting, yet powerful internal world is mirrored in Lapins’ work.

Lapins’ compelling artwork has been part of more than 100 exhibitions, nationally and internationally. Some of the venues are: Arnold Hammer Museum, Long Beach Museum, San Bernardino Museum, Texas Art Museum and Cornell Museum.

Additionally, she has been honored with many awards from organizations such as Manhattan Arts International, Salisbury University, Women’s Caucus for Arts and Harve De Grace Arts Commission.

Born in New York, N.Y., she was educated at Otis Parsons Art Institute and Cal Poly University, where she earned a B.A., summa cum laude.
