Vicky Lentz will speak October 19 at 2:30 pm.
Encountering the art of Vicky Lentz is to engage with work that is sourced from life and nature as much as it is from aesthetic traditions. Ideas of transcendence, feelings of reverence and an emphasis on process permeate Vicky’s practice. Her approach is exploratory, innovative and diverse as she moves fluidly between materials, mediums and approaches. In her art, everyday things like pop can tabs, plastics, sequins, bones, elastics, and glue are reconfigured through repetitive actions and accumulation, transformed from pedestrian trifles to ephemeral surfaces, agents of light and shadow, in effect becoming experiences as much as they are objects.
Vicky Lentz has been named a finalist finalist for the Prix Éloizes- Artist of the Year in Visual Arts for the exhibition, Deep Listening.
Posts from Vicky about the exhibition:
For the install: James Buxton, Gilles Pelletier and Stephen Hutchings
I would like to share the people behind my exhibition, Deep Listening, at The Andrew & Laura McCain Gallery in Florenceville, that is a finalist for the Prix Éloizes- Artist of the Year in Visual Arts.
At the hanging of the show, you see- from left to right- James Buxton, Gilles Pelletier and Stephen Hutchings. A wood carver, a knife maker and an important NB painter, these three made sure that all the pieces made it onto the walls where I wanted them. They were patient, efficient and kind! A sincere note of appreciation to all three!
Je veux partager les personnes derrière mon exposition, Écoute profonde, à l”ALMAG à Florenceville, qui est finaliste pour un Prix Éloizes- Artiste de l’année en arts visuels.

Support at the ALMAG for the educational programming and school visits.
Continuing to share the wonderful support that my exhibition, “Deep Listening”, had to be a finalist for the Prix Éloizes -Artist of the Year in the Visual Arts.
The Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery staff and volunteers developed a wonderful educational program around the exhibition and invited children from the local schools to participate. I know that you will understand the importance of their work with the school children. Thank you for introducing my work to the local youth!
Vicky also participated in the Isolated // Together exhibition at the Gallery in 2021.
