ABOUT THE ARTIST
LuAnn T. Palazzo is an award-winning designer, fine art photographer, and independent curator living on Long Island, NY. Her art is shown in museums and galleries all over the world as well as above it, in the Art Gallery on board the International Space Station. She studied with world-renowned photographer Arthur Leipzig, receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts at LIU Post in Brookville, NY. She also brought two highly acclaimed international exhibitions to Long Island in the past few years, and her opinions have been quoted both by the New York Times and the art critic Jerry Saltz.
Her work is in a number of Permanent Collections including the Museum of Modern Art, NY; the Museum of Modern Art in Wales, UK; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; and the Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, Brazil. She is also in many private collections around the globe.
Ms. Palazzo considers her work to be a constant pursuit of moments of light, both literal and metaphorical. She says, ''I firmly believe that the world around us constantly offers quiet instances of beauty and sheer wonder, and I endeavour to be both mindful enough and quick enough to capture some of them. I am always chasing the light.'' In 2016, she was selected as the National Women’s History Month Artist by the Town of Islip.
She is president of the graphic design firm Palazzo Design & Marketing in Islip, NY.
