Lorena Pugh



Working in oils in the realm of contemporary realism, Lorena has received a number of national and international awards for past works.  She earned a BFA from Pratt Institute, attended the Art Students League, the School of Visual Arts and the Rhode Island School of Design.


As a student of realism in the late 70’s and early 80’s, Lorena’s focus was on illustration. With the revival of classical realism, her work has shifted from a more communicative approach to a more emotive style.


Currently she is working on a two-year project to produce a large body of work relating to Narragansett Bay. The project will culminate in a show at Dryden Gallery in Providence RI this October, with partial proceeds going to an environmental group for the bay. She is also represented by Renjeau Gallery in Boston MA.
