Brown Bag Lunch: Lori Schreiner Discusses Her Work


Date & Time: 
Aug 10 2017 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Lori Schreiner's "Honoring the Children of Aleppo" art collection hangs in the River Garden for the month of August.  Join Lori for a discussion of her work. 

The paintings in this show are inspired by photos posted online and in newspapers over the past year. Photos of Syrian boys and girls behind barbed wire, in refugee camps, amid bombed out buildings. A boy being evacuated from Aleppo on a bus flashing the peace sign. A teenager sitting on the ground outside a field hospital keening over his father’s body wrapped in a turquoise blanket. And Omran rescued after an airstrike in Aleppo sitting alone on an orange seat inside an ambulance.

The paintings also aim to honor the White Helmets who dig through the rubble every day to save survivors and the photojournalists who courageously walk through the war to bear witness.

Lori Schreiner is a painter, writer and social worker. She has studied painting at the Arts Students league in NYC, at the River Gallery School since 1988, and was a member of the Windham Art Gallery. Her work has been shown in NYC and local venues in VT.  Her writing has appeared in The Best of Write Action 1 and 2. Twenty-six of her paintings appear in a collaborative book with the poems of Theresa Senato Edwards called Painting Czeslawa Kwoka, honoring Children of the Holocaust, which won the Tacenda Literary Award: Best Collaboration, 2010 for “Last Look.”
