Perspectives of the American Axperience
A National Juried Exhibition of Women Artists
Rockwell Museum, Corning, New York
On View: January 19 – April 22, 2018
Closing Reception: Friday, April 20, 2018
“Gender bias still exists in the fine art world. Female artists are disproportionately underrepresented in museum collections, despite receiving critical recognition and focused scholarship. Juried shows like this help to bring awareness about the work of living female artists to help level the playing field. As The Rockwell Museum moves towards expanding our collection in this dedicated field, our featured exhibitions give us the opportunity to present the work of contemporary female artists.”
-Kirsty Buchanan, Curator of Collections, Rockwell Museum
I am so honored to be a part of this juried show at the Rockwell Museum in New York. The mission of the museum is for visitors to experience art about America- the people, land and ideas that shape American through the eyes of American Artists.
My painting “Between Two Worlds” depicts an adolescent First Nations boy dancing at a local Pow-Wow. While very much a typical American teen, enjoying the social gathering, I could also see the deep pride he felt in preserving the traditions of his people in dance and song.
