Lesley Dill: Gallery Talk
75 Russell St
Lewiston, ME 04240
Artist Lesley Dill presents a Gallery Talk in the Bates Museum of Art and her exhibition, Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me, followed by questions from the audience.
Lesley Dill is one of the most prominent American artists working at the intersection of language and fine art. Her elegant sculptures, art installations, mixed-media photographs, and evocative performances draw on experiences including travels abroad, intensive research, and profound interests in spirituality and the world’s faith traditions.
For this intellectually and aesthetically engaging exhibition, Dill spent over a decade researching and creating a large group of sculptures and two-dimensional objects. Presented as an immersive installation, the works represent an ongoing investigation into the voices and personas of the American past.
