"CMCA Sunday Salon | Heather Lyon Performance”

CMCA Sunday Salon | Heather Lyon Performance

The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites the public to attend a Sunday Salon with artist Heather Lyon of Blue Hill on December 10, at 3pm. Lyon is one of the artists represented in the current exhibition, Materiality: The Matter of Matter, on view at CMCA through February 11, 2018.

Lyon (b. 1975) is a sculptor and performance artist who works with unlikely materials ranging from rebar to sequins to milk. She received her MFA and BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and currently teaches at the Blue Hill Harbor School. She has shown at numerous galleries in Chicago, Nantes (France), and Maine, and has attended residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and at Atelier Alain LeBras in France, as well as workshops at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Ox-Bow Artist’s Colony in Michigan, and the Burren College of Art in Ireland. She recently returned from Tbilisi, Georgia, where she was invited to exhibit and perform new work at the Georgian National Museum.

Her recent work on view at CMCA is Milk, Roll, Wrap, a series of task-based performance videos that question the ways we negotiate longing, loss, desire, power, and vulnerability. During the Sunday Salon on December 10, Lyon will present a new live performance piece, followed by an informal talk and opportunity for audience questions.

CMCA’s Sunday Salons are an ongoing series of engaging conversations with contemporary artists and thinkers in the fields of art and design. The talks are free to CMCA members, others with admission.
