ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 27, 2019 - Atrium Gallery has announced the inaugural exhibition at its new gallery in The Dorchester, 665 S. Skinker Blvd. The gallery will host a solo show by national artist, Lesley Dill, opening November 8, with an artist reception, 6 - 8 p.m. On Saturday, November 9, there will be a Coffee with the Artist, from 10 - 11 a.m.
"Lesley Dill: Voice" will feature an extensive group of works involving the use of language intimately mingled with drawings and constructions bringing strong force to the intellectual threads of Dill's work. Her deep rooted interest in literature and connections to her New England legacy and Puritan intellectuals and their writings, mixed with later influences from figures such as Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Faulkner, and Kafka permeate her works. "Poem Dress of Circulation" is a typical expression for her, with words spilling down the delicate object including thread and chiri kozo paper.
Dill has been known as a scholar from childhood, majoring in English, and later receiving an MA from Smith and an MFA from Maryland Institute of Art. She has developed a very expressive practice of creating art objects that are commanding great respect and value, exhibiting nationally and internationally. These are being collected by numerous major museums, including The Metropolitan Museum and The Museum of Modern Art, NY, The National Gallery of Art, Library of Congress, and National Gallery of Women in the Arts, Washington DC.
The imagery is mostly realized in clothed figures or articles of clothing and she explains "Clothing houses the house that houses the soul." Her expressions are deep indeed, and she speaks as most artists desire, to universal understandings. This special exhibition celebrates the Opening of the new gallery space for 33 year old Atrium Gallery and marks a new path for this St. Louis gallery as it presents works that seek to move viewers with aesthetics and message, to an enriching experience with art.
