The public is invited to a one-hour program of three artists’ talks and Q&A featuring the following artists in the Feminisms exhibition: Angela Ellsworth, an interdisciplinary artist who works in sculpture, drawing, installation, and performance, drawing lines of communication between her Mormon ancestry and the work of 19th and 20th century female mystics; Thais Mather, whose work spans sculpture, printmaking, painting, new media, and installation, exploring themes of feminism, authorship, mythology, the objectification of culture, and women’s labor; and Marie Watt (Seneca Nation), whose artwork draws from history, biography, Iroquois protofeminism, and Indigenous teachings, exploring the intersection of history, community, and storytelling.
