Born in Montreal, Leslie Fry grew up in Vermont where she lives now.
She earned an MFA from Bard College, and a BA from the University of
Vermont. She has been an educator at the university level since 1988,
and is currently Studio Art Lecturer at Dartmouth College
Fry works with a variety of media, making 2D work on paper, fabric and
wood, and sculpture from ceramic, concrete, plaster, bronze and other
materials. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries
across the globe including Paris, Seoul, Hamburg, New York City,
Vienna, Montreal, New Orleans, and Boston.
Fry says, "I draw, print, model, and cast by combining organic materials
such as plants, paper, clay, and fabric with plaster, concrete, metal, and
resin. Recent works on paper have taken on new lives as animations. In
my ongoing sculpture series Supports, architectural details are imbued
with human expression about life’s precariousness. Forms are stacked
to evoke balance, endurance, falling apart, and holding together."
