Lani Browning, an award winning plein air oil painter for over twenty five years, is known for her masterly skill with colors, especially her inspired use of greens. Her travels around the country and abroad, and her love of the land have contributed to her focus on the landscape.
She was one of ten plein air painters invited to paint at the Forbes family Chateau de Balleroy in Normandy France, with a Fall 2005 exhibit “Normandie en Plein Air” at The Forbes Gallery, NYC, NY. She has also been a juried artist in the popular “Paint Annapolis” and "Plein Air Easton" competitions. In 2008 Lani and other members of The Washington Society of Landscape Painters embarked on a partnership with The Nature Conservancy- an exciting project in which the artists painted the sanctuaries that have been established to preserve rare and endangered species and ecosystems in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC areas. In 2009, another partnership was formed with The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, with an exhibition at The University of Maryland University College in 2010.
Selected exhibitions of her paintings have been shown at the Academy Art Museum in historic Easton, MD, The Art League Gallery and The Atheneum (Fine Arts Association of Virginia) in Alexandria, VA., American Painting Fine Art Gallery in Washington DC., Maryland Hall of the Arts in Annapolis, MD., and the Southern Vermont Center for the Arts in Manchester VT. Paintings can also be seen in group shows with The Washington Society of Landscape Painters.Lani is the archivist for this historic Society and currently working on a book about Society members dating back to 1913.
She is a juried member of Oil Painters of America, The Salmagundi Club, and the Washington Society of Landscape Painters. In 2014, Lani's work was published in Gary Pendleton's book "100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic".
She resides on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
