“Assemblage Paintings” will feature the art of 70-year-old artist Leslie Shaw Zadoian. The solo show at Gallery 307 will showcase Ms. Shaw Zadoian’s assemblage paintings with unusual combinations of metal, wood, acrylic paint, pastels and other traditional media on canvas. Inspired by nature, art, discarded objects and the inner journey, her artwork transforms disparate elements and integrates them into a new universe. Located in Chelsea, Gallery 307 is The Carter Burden Center’s program which gives a voice to professional older artists, self-taught artists and artists with special needs.
Leslie Shaw Zadoian was born in 1941 and grew up in Revere, MA. She came to New York in 1959, received her BA and MA from Queens College and studied at The Art Students League of New York. She worked as a graphic designer/editor/director in publishing at The Viking Press, Penguin Books and CBS International and in higher education at Queens College. Well into middle age, she realized her vocation and started working full time making art. She has shown her work in several exhibits in New York City and Liberty, NY.
