Yesterday, I dropped off my artist’s book, Neighborhood Watch to be included in the Women’s Caucus for Art group show, Echoes for March 2018. Excited to join my fellow WCA members! My piece combines colorful paste papers and photo image transfers on acetate to create 27 ft. long row of houses. This sculptural book displays sheer photographic eyes and faces peering out from the windows with watchful eyes outward, as well as, inward feelings of ghostly pasts, memories, and dreams. The distressed, rubbed image transfers contribute an unease to the book, highlighting our modern reality with concerns over security in the context of home.
February 28 – March 31, 2018
Opening Reception: March 2, 6-8PM
The exhibition celebrates the renewal of the Boston chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art. The work illustrates the resonance and richness that echoes can reveal in our changing lives. This theme is especially relevant with the resurgence of feminist activism – the so-called “third wave”.The common theme throughout the work reveals echoes that transcend issues in context of politics, history, art and the personal. The viewers will recognize and examine the echoes that surround and inform all of us.The Women’s Caucus for Art was founded in 1972 with a mission to create community through art, education, and social activism. For many years the Boston Chapter was one of the largest and most active in the country. In Echoes, the new WCA Boston is reconnecting with its past and supporting not only women artists, but all women.
