Lisa Grossman

Bio

Born in 1967 in western Pennsylvania, Grossman moved to Kansas City in the late 1980’s. Over the past twenty-some years she has established herself as a prominent painter and printmaker of eastern Kansas’s open prairie spaces and the Kansas River Valley. Over thirty solo shows in the Midwest and on either coast, Grossman has evolved a luminous and minimalist plein air style, focusing on the horizon and subtle shifts in light and color, weather and season.

Based in Lawrence, Kansas since 1996, Grossman’s work is included in numerous public, private, and institutional collections including the Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas; the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, Kansas and The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, Kansas State University. Grossman has completed numerous commissions including monumental canvases for the Kansas City Chiefs Art Program at Arrowhead Stadium, the H & R Block World Headquarters, Kansas City, MO and the University of Kansas School of Business, Lawrence, KS. She has been a eight-time artist-in-resident in the National Parks and was a 2009 recipient of the Kansas Arts Commission’s Mid-Career Fellowship. Grossman earned degrees from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the University of Kansas, Lawrence.
