Fay Lansner was a student at Tyler College of Art, Columbia University, and Hans Hofmann in Provincetown and New York City. A native New Yorker, Lansner also worked in Bridgehampton near fellow painters Robert Motherwell, Stanley Boxer, Esteban Vicente, Perl Fine, Larry Rivers, and critic Harold Rosenberg.  During the period 1955 to 1965 Fay Lansner participated in at least eighteen group shows in the New York area, and from 1965 to 1975, more than thirty exhibitions throughout the United States and in Paris. Her work was the subject of thirteen one woman exhibitions from 1951 to 1975.   Moving through many styles, from abstraction to figuration, Lansner thrived on color.  In 1961, the critic Vivian Raynor referred to Fay’s palette: “When she uses color…Ms. Lansner does so with savagery.”
