Photographer, video artist, printmaker and former dancer Leona Strassberg Steiner has lived on the West and East coasts of the US, and Israel. Her work centers on issues related to our planet’s future, our political dilemma, natural landscapes, and transitions in time. “Art is about revisiting our perspectives about racism, the class/religious divide, and environmentalism; the end game is seeing how we are all connected on this planet, how we are all one.” Steiner has exhibited her photographs and hand pulled prints extensively with solo exhibitions of her work at The Victory Hall Drawing Rooms of Jersey City and the New Jersey City University Visual Arts Gallery. She has participated in various group exhibitions in Spain, California, Illinois, New Jersey, New Orleans, Wisconsin, Evanston, and New York. Steiner was active in the art scene in Jersey City, where she was a frequent collaborator in projects such as We Are 6 at Alley Arts, her self-run studio/atelier/gallery. She has curated three exhibits in the past six year; Paths that Cross, photography and video, @303 Gallery in Jersey City, and PolitiocoPopUp 1 & 2, a politically charged multi medium art show with over 40 artists from around the country @New Orleans Art Center here in New Orleans.
