Lisa Poszywak is a Detroit-based artist, musician, and educator who has been exhibiting paintings locally and nationally since 2009. Poszywak elegantly blurs the lines between realism and surrealism, creating dazzling still lifes that are sometimes charming, sometimes wistfully nostalgic, and other times just a bit haunting.

When she’s not painting, Poszywak performs and records as one-half of the local post-punk duo Rogue Satellites.



The Art and Exhibitions Committee’s mission is to promote and foster an appreciation of two and three-dimensional art for library patrons, through exhibits, lectures, and an expanded collection of art books.
