Lesley Dill at the Whatcom Museum, Washington

Lesley Dill’s “Poetic Visions: From Shimmer to Sister Gertrude Morgan” at the Whatcom Museum, Washington

October 23, 2011 – March 4, 2012

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 from both her travels abroad and profound interests in spirituality and the world’s faith traditions. Exploring the power of words to cloak and reveal the psyche, Dill invests new meaning in the human form. Intellectually and aesthetical engaging, the core of her work emerges from an essential, visionary awareness of the world.

Curator of Art Barbara Matilsky authored the catalogue and curated the show, which will travel nationally.
