Woods – Water – Words
By Lori Reed
Lori Reed is an Illinois artist who has spent most of her adult life as a graphic designer. She’s been making mixed media collages for the last 15 years and uses photos as the basis of her work since 2009. Nature inspires Lori in her work and her daily life. This artist creates mixed media wall hangings using multiple digitally altered photographs with handmade papers; found antique accounting ledgers; shredded $1000 bills from the Federal reserve; antique maps; newsprints; colored pencils; and acrylic paint.
Lori has been exhibiting her artwork since 2006 in group or two-person shows. She’s
had her work accepted into national juried shows in Illinois, Iowa, New York and
Colorado. She was awarded the Purchase Prize in GALEX 44 in 2010, so her piece “More
Than Merely Ourselves” is in the permanent collection of the Galesburg Civic Art Center.
In 2011, Lori received an Honorable Mention prize in the Open Small Works show of the
National Association of Women Artists Gallery in New York, New York for her artwork
“Impressions”. Over the past 10 years, she’s sold her work in galleries located in
Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Montana and Arizona.
This exhibit reflects Ms. Reeds love for the midwest – our woodlands, nature, and waterways. It will be on display and available for purchase through September 21. Lori will be joining us for September’s First Friday Art Hop.
