Learn About Grants for Artists' Progress (GAP) Awards
Lisa Myers Bulmash is a collage, assemblage sculpture and book artist who works primarily in acrylics, paper and found objects. Informally trained, Myers Bulmash began her career making handmade cards. After her father’s death in 2006, the artist felt compelled to take more personal risks in her creative life. Questions of identity, trust and the imperfect memory now drive most of her work. The artist aims to nudge the viewer into recognizing our shared stories, especially those narratives that are usually experienced in isolation.
Collage work by Myers Bulmash resides in the city of Seattle’s art collection (which includes art by Dale Chihuly and Kara Walker), as well as four other municipal and institutional collections. The artist has received grants from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation and other arts benefactors. Her work has also been featured in the Seattle Times, on Seattle TV stations and in the Washington Post.
The artist maintains strong ties to the Seattle art community via Artist Trust, Wa Na Wari and other organizations. She exhibits her work in group and solo shows throughout the Seattle metro area. On the East Coast, Myers Bulmash is represented by Morton Fine Art Gallery in Washington, DC.
