LeMieux Galleries is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Marcy Lally. WILD WISDOM will open with a reception with the artist on Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. during First Saturday Art Walk on Julia Street. LeMieux Galleries’ is open Monday-Saturday from 10-5:30.
A prominent theme in Marcy Lally’s work is rebirth — the continuous cycle of decay giving way to life. Each work is a unique time capsule celebrating these intricacies in the cycle of life. In her work Lally often uses found animal skulls as the centerpiece. On these skulls she sculpts ﬂowers from a variety of colored earthen clays, pressing each petal by hand. Along with handmade ﬂowers, she uses found art, repurposed glazed ﬂowers, vintage plates, clocks and other bits of memorabilia. In creating these assemblages, Lally aims to create a nostalgic look that conjures up memory and memento mori.
