Bronze Sculptures by Lorraine Vail

Artist Statement “The meaning behind an artistic image can sometimes be different to the viewer than it is to its creator”.

Art comes from the same region of the brain that dreams do, so different than the region that tries to organize and process the vast amounts of information we are constantly exposed to.

An apprentice in the studio of a noted painter starting at the age fifteen, Lorraine Vail’s solid traditional background in drawing and painting earned a full, four-year scholarship based on artistic merit.

With a B.F.A. in Illustration from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA she then worked as a freelance illustrator and sculptor primarily in New York and Philadelphia. With an exceedingly active, twenty-year history of public sculpture commissions, Vail’s work can be found in a number of public and private collections in this country as well as overseas, where several distinguished hotels have installed her fountains and sculptures.

She has been honored with a number of solo and group exhibitions and her work appears in a variety of venues from galleries and museums to corporations and universities. Her sculptures have appeared in exhibits at Temple University, PA. They are part of the permanent collections of the Blackhawk Automotive Museum in CA and the Berman Museum in PA. Three of Vail’s public sculptures are listed as sites on the National Museum of Women in the Arts tour in the Washington, D.C. area. Five of Vail’s bronzes are included in the Vatican Library’s permanent art collection in Rome.
