Her paintings celebrate gay romance, often set in the beauty of the extremely fragile and threatened ecosystems and threatened wild life of South Florida.

Legere is also entranced by the 
landscape architecture and flower arrangements of the great South Florida horticulturalists.

   
 
There will be a pre-show cocktail party at the Arts Garage in Delray Beach on January 14.  Some of the paintings from Phoebe’s Gay Icon series include:
--Lagerfeld
--Phoebe Serenading Heron at Loxahatchee,
--Darlene Eisenstein’s Hole in One,
--and Nude Reclining in Spanish Moss.  

Legere has played piano at many of the elite country clubs in the area. In addition to being a Juilliard trained composer, conductor and “master songwriter,” Legere is a scholar of the Great American Songbook. She is active in Jewish affairs and philanthropies including her Foundation for New American Art. Phoebe Legere is the founder and Executive Director of the Foundation, a 501(c)3 that brings art and music to children of low-income communities. Proceeds from Phoebe’s performances will go to the Foundation.

The Foundation for New American Art’s mission is to: “educate, as well as nurture and strengthen the artistic and musical spirit of the children of low-income communities.” 

Legere Style & Substance

An uplifting, family-friendly artist, she combines “French haute couture with low-down Louisiana bayou blues.” The Washington Post writes, ”Legere is an expressive and versatile singer whose voice ranges from a dark and earthy alto to a gorgeous dazzling high soprano. She combines intelligent lyrics and a fusion of French musette, Cajun, pop, rock, folk and jazz into a "roots alternative" stew.”

Ms. Legere has released 15 CDs of original and traditional music including her 2014 album GAY. Her song about endangered Florida frogs,  Hip Hop Frog, was sold to HBO in 2015. 

She opened for David Bowie on his National Tour. An American Treasure, this “multi-keyboard, vocal wizard” has been compared to “Beethoven” (Paper Magazine) “Edith Piaf” (Stephen Holden, NY Times) and “Frank Zappa. ” (Billboard)
