The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites the public to the 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.
