Studio visit

    This event is an intimate chat with the artist, Lori LaMont in her studio, hosted by Ron Nelson, director of the Long Beach Museum of Art.  Lori utilizes watercolor in a way that is unexpectedly non-traditional and uniquely hers.  She  is preparing to exhibit her twenty feet of watercolor at the Long Beach Museum of Art for one year upon its completion.  This title painting is at the center of her series, Under The Influence, which focuses its attention on the plight of the extravagant human pageant.

    • The painting will be on display during the salon and guests will see it as only few will, still a work in progress quite near its completion.  
    • The salon will take place in Lori's studio, a basement room in a church in her neighborhood.
    • There will be a slide show presentation with several time-lapse videos that show the series as a whole (so far!).
    • Several paintings from the series, Under The Influence, will be on view in her studio

    About the artist

    Lori LaMont

    Lori LaMont was born in San Pedro, California.  In lieu of college and art school, Lori moved to New York City for two years to experience the city and immerse herself in its galleries and museums.  There she saved the money she earned working at Saks Fifth Avenue, creating displays for the accessories department, until she left to travel extensively throughout Europe where she spent every moment enjoying all of its art and culture.  

    Working exclusively in watercolor, Lori has been painting professionally since 1993.  A self taught artist, she has eschewed traditional watercolor techniques and styles.  Her large-scale paintings are executed with incredible precision, and utilize layers of bold, saturated color and meticulously rendered detail.  Lori's paintings have been commissioned for corporate collections, featured in many group and solo exhibitions in galleries in several states, been featured in several museum exhibitions, and have been showcased in numerous publications, both print and televised media.

    She has donated her time and many works over the years to such causes as DIFA (The Design Industry Fighting Aids), the Long Beach Museum of Art, and Comprehensive Child Development, Inc. Long Beach.

    Lori currently resides in Long Beach, Ca where she has lived since 1995.
