Francine LeClercq was born in Belfort, France. She completed her education in interior architecture and fine arts with honors from the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg/ France. Recipient of the Ritleng Prize, she was invited to collaborate on works with the International architect/artist/designer Gaetano Pesce in New York. LeClercq’s first solo show, ‘Opening’, an installation featuring hundreds of canvasless paintings, was held at Soho20 Gallery in 1999. Her third solo exhibition ‘mise en [s]cène’, 2007 was made possible through a generous Fellowship from Soho20 Chelsea Gallery. She has had the privilege to see her work selected in juried competitions by eminent curators such as Peter Blum/Peter Blum Gallery, James Cuno/Art Institute Chicago, Lynne Warren/ Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago, and Maxwell Anderson / Whitney Museum, to mention a few. She recently won the fifth round of the international online Saatchi gallery competition and was selected to show in London. Museum exhibitions include The McCormick Freedom Museum (Chicago/IL), The Holter Museum of Art (Montana), The Allentown Art Museum (Allentown, PA), The Islip Art Museum (Islip, NY). Her work has been reviewed in The Star-Ledger, The Chicago Sun-Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Allentown Morning Call, The Easton PA Express Times, The New York Times Weschester, The Boston Sunday Globe, Octogon International Magazine , American Style Magazine, Interior Design Magazine, Arhitext International Magazine, Azimuts and the Dernières Nouvelles d’Alsace ( DNA ).
