Some people can do everything. Case in point, artist Elizabeth Langer not only creates magnificent artwork, she was also a successful lawyer working for the U.S. Depatment of Justice in Washington, DC and later in private practice.

But all that legal eagle stuff is behind her now, the creative lure so much more sharp and potent than the scales of law. Good for her. After all, the world is full of lawyers, some are even nice people, but an artist’s work is always a solo show.

Ms. Langer’s drawings, paintings, collages and monotypes have been exhibited at the Corcoran Museum Gallery in Washington DC, the Courtyard Gallery, the Washington Studio School and the Alexandria Art League in numerous juried exhibitions. A solo exhibit of her photographs, A Sabbatical in Israel, is currently on exhibit at the Frankel Hall Gallery, B’nai Jeshurun, 257 West 88th Street, New York city.

But no need to travel to see her work. From August 12 through August 14, Ms. Langer is holding a reception at her gallery located at 41 Josiah Sachem Way (off Christiantown Road), West Tisbury.

For a preview of her work visit Then go check out her gallery between the hours of 5 and 7:30 p.m.
