Lawrence Wallin

Over the years I have worked in many of the visual arts including: ceramics, photography, print making, and sculpture; for the last five years I have been expressing my thoughts and emotions primarily in painting and drawing.

I graduated from Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles County (now Otis College of Art and Design) with an MFA, 1966. My major was painting and a minor in drawing. I have worked as an artist almost full time since then. I have had regular solo shows, as well as exhibiting in numerous group shows and competitions. I have executed many commissions mostly for banks, hotels and aero-space companies, plus occasional wedding portraits and other special private commisions.

I have had had two museum retrospective exhibits: one at the Carnegie Museum, Oxnard, CA, 1989 and the other at the Brand Library Gallery, Glendale, CA, 1985.

Museum group and solo shows include those at Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Municipal Gallery, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia and The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum.

Gallery exhibits have been in the cities of: Beverly Hills, Dahran, Grand Rapids, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Montecito, Morro Bay, Orange, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica.
