Lisa Levart is a visual artist/photographer whose interest lies at the intersection
between fine arts and social engagement. Her subjects are women and how our stories connect us to one another. Levart’s work blends several mediums, including collage, film, multi media, dance and photography. She never “shoots” an image; that is a violent act. Her process rather is collaborative, making space for personal agency, and the radical act of declaring, “See me.”
Levart’s work has been mounted in unique environments: as a 4-story installation in an Atrium at the Palisades Center Mall, and as an immersive, multi-media installation at The Luna Stage Theater in West Orange, N.J. Traditional galleries have featured the work including Ramapo College, Bergen Gallery at Bergen Community College, The Hopper House, Burden Gallery (Aperture Foundation), Art in General and Rockland Center for the Arts. An experimental dance video she co-directed and choreographed in 1984 is in the permanent collection of the 9/11 Memorial Museum in NYC. A book of her work, Goddess on Earth, Portraits of the Divine Feminine (2011), won a Gold Nautilus Book Award. The California Institute of Integral Studies also named this monograph one of the 100 Best New Women’s Spirituality Books in 2018.
Her new book, Goddess on Earth ORACLE won a SIlver Nautical Book Award (Books for a Better World) in 2022.
We’re thrilled that Lisa will be leading the morning workshop on the third day of the Over-50 Retreat this year: Feed Your Creativity With Oracle Cards.
