Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Annie Lapin is a Los Angeles-based painter who earned her MFA from UCLA and undergraduate degree from Yale. Her work was recently named by Modern Painters and Angelenos magazines as vital to the Los Angeles art scene. Along with being Editor’s Pick in New American Paintings, Lapin’s museum exhibitions include the Pasadena Museum of California Art – Pasadena, CA; and Grand Arts – Kansas City, MO. Her work has been exhibited at Honor Fraser, Angles Gallery, and LA Louver in Los Angeles, Galerie Lelong and Fredericks and Frasier in New York and Barbara Davis in Houston.
In an interview with Los Angeles Magazine, when asked how she discovered her artistic talent, Lapin answered, “I don’t really think talent pushes people into this field. It’s a question of gravity and peripherally it’s about lifestyle. The moment of discovery happened when I realized that all the ideas, impulses, and anxieties that had been tangling up in my mind my whole life could be addressed through my artwork.”
