Lisa Gleim-Jonas, ASMA,SPS, IAPS/MC
Lisa Gleim, an award-winning landscape artist is part of a family of successful Southern artists. She is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and is the Audubon Artists 2012 & 2016 Gold Medal of Honor for Pastel recipient, and Audubon Artists 2013 Art Spirit Foundations Gold Medal Award for Pastel recipient. She is a signature member of the Southeastern Pastel Society and a Master Circle Member of the International Assoc. of Pastel Societies.
Lisa works in both pastel and oil and achieves two very different styles from each medium. She is particularly interested in capturing the beauty of light and how it affects the landscape. She paints on location as often as possible—her destinations of choice are usually coastal, especially the Low Country regions of the South. Painting these coastal scenes reminds her of the childhood summers she spent at Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
Lisa has exhibited her landscapes around the country in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions, including the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art in metro Atlanta; Customs House Museum in Tennessee; Harbor History Museum in Tacoma, Washington; Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina; and the Gertrude Herbert Museum in Augusta, Georgia. Her works are also held in many private collections throughout the world, including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Orthopaedic Division; the chambers of the Honorable Vice-Chancellor Jack B. Jacobs in Wilmington, Delaware; Astra-Zeneca Pharmaceutical in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania; and of Mayor Eva Galambos at Sandy Springs City Hall in suburban Atlanta. She has also been a returning juror for the Atlanta Arts Festival and the Virginia Highland Festival.
