Artist’s work examines color and its impact on emotional life

Leanne Venier’s work is currently on display in the Briscoe Library Information Commons and in the medical school’s Lecture Hall Foyer.

Leanne Venier, an Austin area artist whose work explores the healing properties of color and, more generally, the relationship between color and the emotional life, will speak in the Briscoe Library on Thursday, June 9 from noon to 1 p.m.

Leanne’s work has received international recognition:  She was awarded the Grand Prize of the Jury for Outstanding Artwork in Vico del Gargano, Italy. She was also a finalist for the prestigious Hunting Art Prize in Houston, and has been profiled in the Touch Décor international design magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and Austin Woman magazine.   She has been interviewed numerous times on Austin Radio stations KUT 90.5 FM and KOOP 91.7 FM.

Leanne’s June 9 presentation, on The Color Effect, will take place in the Howe Conference Room on the 5th floor of the Briscoe Library.  The talk is free of charge and open to all.

Leanne’s paintings can be viewed through the end of June in the Briscoe Library Information Commons and the medical school’s Lecture Hall Foyer.
