Dee Shapiro has been a working artist and an art teacher for over 35 years. Dee was part of the Pattern and Decoration Movement, exhibiting at P.S.1 in Queens, New
York. In 1977, after experimenting with pattern paintings, she became interested in the geometric intricacy of architectural designs which led to the creation of small horizontal oil paintings of cities, landscapes and interiors. Music is involved with pattern as well and her family members are musicians. A playfulness in art and music is inspiration for the “Musical Chair.”
Dee’s work is in collections such as The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York City; Albright-Knox Museum, Buffalo, New York; Neuberger Museum, Purchase,
New York; Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, Conecticut; and
Louis-Dreyfus Financial Group, Wilton, Connecticut.
