Bruckers’s work can be seen in the show “INsideOUT!” at the NIU Art Museum through Thursday, Dec. 9.

She is a painter, sculptor, poet, video and installation artist interested in spiritual issues. In her work, she examines memory, fragility, beauty and death by constructing both large-scale and intimate pieces from found objects and family heirlooms.

She also is an Alexander Technique practitioner and will discuss this technique and its relevance to visual artists. Her workshop, scheduled from 4:45 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16, in Room 415 of the Visual Arts Building, will address kinesthetic memory and how the brain works.

Bruker also will be available for critiques for advanced students Tuesday, Nov. 16, and Wednesday, Nov. 17. A sign-up sheet is posted on the door of Room 414.
