May 2023 Exhibition

John Leben

John Leben
John's paintings are serious explorations of the horrors of Global Warming that, Paradoxically, make you smile. They are often whacky and outrageous, but instilled with a subtle sense of angst that makes you think.

Leben's formal training is in tradtional painting and printmaking. He has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has studied at the prestigious Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. Today, his computer is his medium. He paints his pictures sielding powerful painting programs with skill and panache, instilling them with an other-worldly aura.
But the pictures, not the technique, are the stars of this show. Bold, painterly renderings using fantasy and humor to comment on pressing environmental challenges.

Artist Reception
There will not be a reception for this exhibit.

Throughout the artist’s residency, select pieces are available for purchase through St. Cecilia Music Center. Contact Event + Facility Director Carla Messing at carla@scmcgr.org for more information.
