Sophy Regensburg Rediscovered and Celebrated at the Stamford Museum

What started as Curator Maeve Lawler’s pipedream has evolved into the very first museum exhibition celebrating artist Sophy Regensburg’s profound and inspiring 20-year career. Regensburg, who began painting at the age of 67 in 1951 while living on the Upper East Side in New York City, produced more than 500 works of art over the course of two decades.

As a result of her curatorial tenacity and grass-roots persistence, Lawler triumphed. “Sophy Regensburg: A Retrospective,” an exhibition posthumously dedicated to the artist, features 70 of Regensburg’s paintings, drawings, prints and needlepoint works, and is now on view at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center through Mar 19, 2023.
