JUROR Award winning artist Kyle Blumenthal’s life is steeped in art. From a very early age, she immersed herself in art books, art prints and art works. Her father was a sculptor and served as her first teacher. Her paintings of international conductors and soloists at Lincoln Center have won her critical acclaim. Her exhibits in the greater New York area and on Long Island have earned high praise. She has taken special awards at the Sodarco Gallery in Montreal several times. Her commercial illustrations have been used by Panasonic, CBS, ABC and NY News One. In addition to creating art, Kyle is a teacher and mentor, especially teaching students in college and high school. For more on Kyle, please visit her website.
