Dorothy Englander is a visual artist who currently lives and works in Albany, NY. Since 1980, she has shown her work nationally and throughout the region: the Arts Center of the Capital Region, the Martinez Gallery, the University at Albany, the Schenectady Museum, the Berkshire Museum, Skidmore College, and CollarWorks. Her works feature in a number of private, corporate and public collections, including the Hyde Collection, the Albany Institute of History and Art, the University at Albany, and the collection of the New York State Comptroller. Englander has also served as an art instructor at various institutions and for private students.

Inspired by Englander’s first undergraduate major Biology and the abstraction of artists such as Kandinsky and Diebenkorn, Englander’s works are consistently whimsical and playful. Her pieces range in medium: from paintings in watercolor and oil to drawings in ink and pastel, mixed media collages to printmaking. Her works are experimental worlds informed by landscape and invention as well as Englander’s dreams and memories to create syntheses of nonobjective abstraction and observed representation.

Dorothy Englander Then & Now: Journey will welcome the artist back almost 40 years after her first solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will include works from throughout Englander’s career, which dates to the 1970s, following her journey as an artist across themes, subjects, and modes of creation. Although her perceptions and methodology have changed throughout the decades, one thing has remained constant: Englander’s passion and enthusiasm for the subjects in her wide-ranging body of work.
