With his new body of work, paintings and drawings, Lawrence Leissner returns to the landscape. The images explore the intricacies of atmospheric perspective; how changes in density of atmosphere alter spatial perception, implying landscapes.  Mountains at horizon lines fade into the sky which position the viewer in the space.

Originally from Texas, Leissner received a BFA degree in photography from San Francisco Art Institute. Following graduation, Leissner spent many years in the Bay Area before returning to Texas in 2000 to pursue a MFA degree at UTSA. After receiving his MFA degree, Leissner became manager of the UTSA art department dark room and an adjunct instructor until his retirement in 2013. Leissner decided to pursue traditional means of creating art, painting and drawing.

There will be an opening reception on May 6 from 6-9 pm, and a mid reception on June 3 from 6-9 pm.
