Cloths of Heaven
Martine Chaisson Gallery is pleased to present Held, an exhibition that features hand-selected sculpture and works on paper as well as textile pieces by prolific artist Leslie Fry.
Leslie Fry’s sculptures and drawings are inspired by the basic human needs of shelter, food, clothing, and love. The intersection of the natural world and the human-made world are central in her work. Among diverse influences are Elizabethan poetry and Jungian psychology. She draws, prints, paints, and sculpts by combining organic materials such as plants, paper, clay, and fabric with concrete, metal, plaster, and resin.
Her exhibitions have spanned the globe, including Kunsthaus in Hamburg; Hangaram Art Museum in Seoul; Windspiel Galerie in Vienna; Couvent des Cordeliers in Paris; deCordova Sculpture Park near Boston; Centre des Arts Visuels in Montreal; and Denise Bibro Fine Art, Artists Space, and Wave Hill in New York. Public collections include Tufts University, Songchu International Sculpture Park, Kohler Arts Center, Tampa Museum of Art, Fleming Museum, Kent Museum, and St. Petersburg, Florida’s Museum of Fine Arts.
She has been an educator at the university level since 1988, and is currently Studio Art Lecturer at Dartmouth College. Her B.A. is from the University of Vermont, M.F.A. from Bard College, and she attended the Central School of Art in London. Born in Montreal, Fry lives in Winooski, Vermont.
