Exhibits at The Zephyr Art Gallery

October 2018 the Zephyr Art Gallery presented two exhibits:

  • Nine mixed media collage works by artist Lori Chilefone of Eau Claire, Wisconsin
  • Twenty-one miniature oil paintings and other pieces by artists from Italy, France, Germany and Holland, 17th century to the present, on loan from the private collection of O’Hara and Brint Butchart

Below, two examples of Lori Chilefone’s work: “Little Car” and “Lake Superior”

Ms. Chilfone’s exhibit included collages of printed materials, illustrations, beeswax and pigments. Making these pieces is “a spontaneous process starting with a good crop of subjects and scissors,” she said. “With addition and subtraction of this and that, and with attention for the piece unfolding, somewhere along the way personal meaning is revealed.”

Other artistic credits include:

  • A collage in the 2018 “Confluence of Art” juried art exhibition at the Pablo Center at the Confluence in Eau Claire
  • Cover artist of the 2018 Women Artists Datebook published by Syracuse Cultural Workers
  • Gallery representation in Eau Claire at Caradori Pottery (originals) and Riverwood Art and Frame (prints)

Ms. Chilfone is a freelance fine artist and graphic designer, including graphic design for her family’s business, Next Step Energy, a provider of solar energy systems. She also serves on the board of directors of WHYS 96.3FM, Eau Claire’s non-commercial radio station, and has a passion for family, artistic collaboration and foraging for wild edibles. She holds a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design from the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul. Contact her at lori@nextstepenergy.com.
