Lee Newman is a painter and printmaker from Frederick, Maryland. He received his bachelor of fine art and master of fine art degrees from American University before continuing his studies as a Fulbright Scholar in Vienna, Austria.  A 2016 recipient of the Maryland State Art Council Award, Newman has recently taught printmaking at William and Mary, McDaniel College and currently teaches at the Delaplaine Art Center in Frederick.

His prints and paintings are in a number of private and public collections across the country, including the National Gallery of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The California Palace of the Legion of Honor and The Library of Congress.

“A motivation for much of my work is the attempt to investigate something that I don’t understand. This has led to several themes such as portraits of people with dementia or the chaos of being deep in the woods. In each subject I try to convey the human condition with empathy,” Newman said.
