Christina Schlesinger is an artist and teacher who lives and works in Manhattan and East Hampton. She taught for many years at The Ross School and is currently a curricular consultant there. In January, she had an exhibition, “All True Tomboys”, at the Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City. One of her Tomboy paintings will appear this summer in the Lavender Review, an on-line lesbian magazine, and another will be featured as “Miss July” in the Ms. Magazine blog “girlie calendar”.
Christina has always had a fascination with and love of birds. When she was recovering from all illness she happened upon her Golden Book of Birds while convalescing. This led to a series of bird portraits, several of which will be shown at the Kramoris Gallery in May and June. “Painting the birds helped me get well”, the artist said. “Their spirit made me strong again.” Please come and enjoy Christina’s birds!
