LESLIE SHAW ZADOIAN: SPRING FEVER
March 9 - June 11
Leslie Shaw Zadoian was born in Revere, Massachusetts. A New Yorker for most of her life, she was educated at Queens College, City University of New York (B.A., cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, 1968; M.A., 1971) and at The Art Students League of New York where she studied with Bruce Dorfman. After college, she worked as a writer/editor and graphic designer in book publishing (The Viking Press, Penguin Books, CBS International Publishing) and higher education (Queens College Continuing Education Program). During this time her fine art practice was limited to photography, an occasional painting and—by a stroke of good luck—a residency photographing the restoration of a frescoed garden wall in Pompei. But the time came: She left her job at Queens College in 2005, and by the following year, was making fine art full time. Her work is in private collections in the U.S. and Europe and has been exhibited throughout New York and elsewhere in the United States. Today, Zadoian lives and works in New York City and Liberty, New York.
