Next on Artblog Radio – Joe Leroux and Stacey Lee Webber


Joe Leroux and Stacey Lee Webber moved to Philadelphia from Madison, WI, not long ago. The couple lives in Port Richmond, where they also have a studio nearby. They both have MFA’s from the University of Wisconsin, and while they are both sculptors, their works are nothing alike. Joe’s work combines performance, photography and sculpture, in which the artist is the featured figure – kind of like Matthew Barney, only without all the makeup. Stacey’s a metalsmith and makes use of found coins and paper money which she transforms into new objects. She has stitched dollar bills and has made a complete step ladder out of pennies. They both teach at local art schools and they’ve both had success showing work nationally through their connections, sometimes through an art opportunities website.  Stacey will be in the “40 under 40: Craft Futures” exhibit at the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery next year.  Below is a 38- second sample from our interview.  Listen to the entire interview next Monday.
