Judy Saslow Gallery exhibits work of sculptor Matt Lamb

Matt Lamb, Chicago artist, sculptor, philosopher and peace activist, who passed away at the age of 80, is being given a tribute exhibition by the Judy A. Saslow Gallery.

Lamb began his life in business as a funeral home CEO for Chicago's largest family-run chain. Ironically, it was Lamb's own brush with death at the age of 51 that gave him pause to reconsider his life's work. His decision to recast himself as an artist proved a rewarding one as he traveled the globe in pursuit of meaning through the use of his work.

One of these pursuits resulted in Lamb founding the Umbrellas for Peace project in 2001, a global art project where children and adults decorated umbrellas as a way to work through grief. Over 2 million individuals in 29 countries have participated in Umbrellas for Peace.

Several of Lamb's pieces will be on offer for sale, including works on paper, canvas and purses.

The Judy A. Saslow Gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. It is located at 300 W. Superior St., Ste. 103 in Chicago. For more information about Judy Saslow and her gallery, please visit call 312-943-0530.
