Plein Mountain Air: Magic and Mystery by Lisa Blackshear
After graduating from the University of Minnesota in Studio Arts, Lisa moved to New York City to pursue a career in art and illustration. Her illustrations have appeared in Newsweek, the New York Times, the Wall St Journal, and the Village Voice among other publications. Meanwhile her watercolor paintings inspired by street life in New York City were exhibited in galleries in New York and Minneapolis. A move to Asheville allowed Lisa to pursue her lifelong dream of fine art oil painting. In 2013 she organized the Asheville Urban Landscape Project to bring professional and emerging artists together to paint “en plein air”. She was a featured artist for the Asheville Urban Landscape Project in 2016.
