Margie Schaffer Steinmann
Born and raised in Manhattan, Margie Schaffer Steinmann had an early introduction to fine art through her uncle, the renowned outsider artist, Harry Lieberman. Growing up in the city afforded her the opportunity to spend most of her spare time in museums. She furthered her studies at The University of Wisconsin.
Her compositions often evoke imaginary ruins of her native city that are reborn through refined assembly of color, line, and form. Steinmann states, "I approach each piece in conflict between intuition and intention but my passion and commitment give me the courage, insight and trust to create a sublime discord of classical abstraction."
Steinmann's solo exhibitions include Citibank at 65th& Madison, 3 to 1 Gallery, Washington Square Gallery, and The Red Door. She has participated in numbers juried group exhibitions including Lincoln Center, Weill Cornell Medical Library, Lesley Heller Workspace, aljira Center for Contemporary Art, First Street Gallery, The New York International Arbitration Center, and The Conference Board. Steinmann’s work has been reviewed in the L Magazine, The Jewish Post, and numerous issues of Gallery&Studio. Her work is held in the collections of Screenvision Media, FIT, Fortitude Investment Group, Weill Cornell Medical Library, The Horwitch Collection and The Hispanic Society of the Americas.
