Mira Lehr, "Aqualina," 2015, resin, ink, ignited fuses on panel, 48 x 60 inches
"Mira Lehr’s painting is well-known and highly regarded in Florida but not in New York. She has had a number of successful shows here but the perception of her body of work and its development is fragmentary.
The current exhibition at the Flomenhaft Gallery should rectify this lack of knowledge and accord Lehr’s remarkable body of work the acclaim it deserves." - Irving Sandler, 2015

Hudson Hills Press and Hard Press Editions announce the publication of MIRA LEHR: ARC OF NATURE, a five-decade overview of Lehr's expression of nature that emphasizes light, transparency and layering through a variety of media including gunpowder, fire and resin. Arts and cultural critic Eleanor Heartney analyzes Lehr's work, her background, the process involved in her artistry and her drive as a woman artist. The book features a 2014 interview conducted by art historian and critic Irving Sandler at Lehr's home in Miami Beach and a foreword by Thom Collins, Director of the Barnes Foundation. Lehr's own writing and reflections throughout the book reveal her metaphysical nature. A large format book, Mira Lehr: Arc of Nature features over 100 images of Lehr's art—compelling paintings, sculpture and video—in brilliant color.
