Book and Paper MFA Alumna Presents Work at Woman Made Gallery

Book and Paper MFA alumna Laurie LeBreton’s paper installation artwork River Song is featured in the new Woman Made Gallery exhibition Inspired By: Celebrating Illinois Women Artists. The exhibition opens August 24, with a reception from 6:00–9:00 p.m., and runs until September 27.

The show was juried by sculptor and former NEIU gallery director Mary Stoppert. She selected 47 Illinois women artists, and the pieces reflect a wide range of media and styles. The instigating factor for the exhibition was that each piece had to be inspired by a specific artist. This inspiration could occur in several different ways: approach to or use of subject matter; process; materials; or technique. LeBreton’s chose as her inspiration Melissa Jay Craig, the Chicago-base book, paper, and installation artist.
