Morton Lichter

Morton Lichter was born in Haverstraw, New York. He studied with Raphael Soyer and Anthony Toney, and received a John Bernard Myers scholarship to study painting at the New School in New York. He also studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse with Sanford Meisner and dance with Martha Graham. He divides his time between painting and theatre. From 1964 to 1980, he concentrated on playwriting and teaching theatre.

Between 1995 and 1999, he was co-director of Exiles, a training school for early career professionals based in Cork, Ireland. Morton also worked for two summers at the University of Coleraine in Northern Ireland. His plays have been staged at the Berkshire Theater Festival in Stockbridge, MA, as well as at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Williamstown, MA. An early play, Cafeteria Style, was published in Yale/Theatre, 1967.

He was the recipient in 1976 of an OBIE award for his play Old Timers' Sexual Symphony (and other notes), also performed in Buffalo and as part of the bicentennial celebration of American theare held in Florence, Italy that summer. His play, Given: No Bread, An Encounter and Dinner for Fifteen, was performed in three Italian cities during 1974. In 1980, he received a grant for Creative Writing from the National Endowment of the Arts. His paintings are in private collections in France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, England, Ireland, the US, and Argentina.

Court Tree Collective was established in 2013 by a group of artists and creatives with the primary purpose of representing and supporting the work of emerging and established contemporary artists. Since its opening Court Tree Collective has been a staple to south Brooklyn’s emerging art scene and in a short time has exhibited a number of important exhibitions. In addition they have curated a number of exhibitions at satellite locations throughout the states and abroad. ︎
