Jeffrey Leder Gallery presents an exhibition of works by Donna Levinstone.
Levinstone’s works of art concern themselves more with a spirit of place than an actual place – they are not descriptive of a specific location or place as much as they strive to create an essence of light and atmosphere. Her current work is centered around the relationships between tranquility and volatility, the ethereal and the earthly, light and dark, and night and day. Through the reflected light in her atmospheric drawings, Levinstone invites the viewer to explore the duality of what is permanent in our world and what is ever changing in it.
The artist says, “As I layer my pastel drawings with darkness and light, I explore beauty, transition and the powerful forces of nature.”
An active member of the community, Levinstone has made giving back a large part of her life. She donates both her time and her artwork to many charities and causes throughout the city, including conducting art therapy workshops for cancer patients.
Her collectors include the Library of Congress, the Museum of the City of New York, CBS, General Electric, the US Department of State, AT&T, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Citigroup, Time Inc, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Nabisco Brands Inc, Columbia House, The Disney Company, The Bristol Meyers Company, Pfizer, The New-York Historical Society and Touche Ross.
