Bio + Resume 

After completing an MFA at Indiana University, Lynda Lowe began a fifteen-year teaching career. She left her academic position at Northern Illinois University and moved to Washington State, where she built her studio on Puget Sound and continued her full-time artistic practice. Lowe's interest in what intrinsically connects us to the larger human experience and to the surrounding natural world is often the central theme of her paintings. Travel abroad has had a profound impact on her work, as has her observations of the immediate environment on the island where she lives. Her use of symbolic archetypes, interest in perception and consciousness, and the relationships of art and science are evident in her imagery. Engaging both the rational mind and intuitive spirit, her imagery incorporates large areas of eroded layered color with additions of scrawled text, poetry fragments, geometric diagrams, and highly rendered recognizable objects.

Lynda Lowe's artwork has been widely exhibited nationally in galleries and museums. She's the recipient of numerous grants, among them two individual fellowships from the Illinois Arts Council, a Ford Foundation research grant, and was a finalist for the Behnke Foundation's Neddy Award. She's received eleven residency fellowships at the Ragdale Foundation and was honored with their Distinguished Resident Lifetime Award. Lowe has exhibited her art in over forty solo shows, has been the subject of numerous reviews and publications, and her work is widely held in private, corporate, and museum collections.

Lowe is currently represented by Gail Severn Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho, Patricia Rovzar Gallery in Seattle, Washington, and Argazzi Art in Lakeville, CT.
