Lilith Adler

Lilith Adler died in December 2000 of pneumonia and exhaustion.

Alder's ashes were scattered, along with the ashes of her dog (Faust), at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. There is an unconfirmed report that the ceremony was cut short by the arrival of mounted park rangers who busted everyone for littering. Like I said, unconfirmed.

Lilith Adler was born 1961 in Brookline, MA. She received her art training at the University of Massachusetts/Dartmouth, where she studied with Laurie Kaplowitz, and an M.F.A. in Painting from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she studied with Ron Binks and Charles Field. Over the course of her life, she lived closely with all classes and all races. In order to support her art career, she worked variously as a dishwasher, waitress, secretary, maid, pasteup artist, illustrator, and finally as a software engineer. She is most known for her Thoughtcrime Series, which she completed in the latter half of the 1990's.

Lilith Adler exhibited the Thoughtcrime Series in a group show in Cambridge, MA at the Gallery of Social and Political Art in 1997, in a solo exhibition in Boston, MA at Gallery Insekt in 1998, and posthumously in New York at ABC No Rio’s “Social Control?group exhibition in 2001.

Many of Lilith Adler's paintings have been sold to art collectors but a few remain and belong to the artist's mother. Some of the art collectors do sell her works and records are kept of who currently owns the individual paintings.

Adler's works were first shown in the Lilith Gallery in April of 2000, as a guest artist. The images of her work went into storage but have since returned to permanent display.

Adler's works focus on themes of religion, racism, sexism and patriarchy. Her works are blunt and use text to get her intended message across. Her words are an important aspect of her paintings because she is also an excellent writer. From 2000 to 2006 she was the only American artist shown in the Lilith Gallery.
