Lakewood Cultural Center Press Release:
“Creatures From Left Field” is a departure from Dorothy Tanner’s main body of work which is entirely abstract. These fanciful light sculptures are the first time they have been assembled as an exclusive installation.

Dorothy Tanner was born in New York which is where she began her art career. Her main project for the past several decades has been “Lumonics,” a light and sound multi-sensory expression involving the light sculptures, projection, electronics, and music. Lumonics has been presented in California, Maine, Florida, and now Denver.

Dorothy and team of technicians relocated the studio from South Florida to Denver in 2008. Her art was exhibited at the Denver International Airport in 2014, and prior to that at the Museum of Outdoor Arts in Englewood and VERTIGO Art Space on Santa Fe Drive.

A recent activity has been collaborating with David Taylor, artistic director and choreographer of the Zikr Dance Ensemble on the “Lady of the Lake” ballet. Dorothy has created a series of hand-held light sculptures for the dancers. The ballet has its world premiere at the Lakewood Cultural Center on Sat. June 6. You can also see Dorothy’s exhibit the same evening.
