Accola Griefen Fine Art presents Kin Part I through November 22, 2019. The exhibition features artists Gina Adams, Caroline Burton, Nancy Cohen, Mary Beth Edelson, Jee Hwang and Patsy Norvell.

 ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

“Let us speak of the beings of Earth as the “kin” they are,” writes biologist, Indigenous knowledge keeper and author of Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer. This exhibit is inspired by Kimmerer’s writing and by the concept of kinship and community between all life on the planet. The artists in KIN address our relationships with water, land, animals and with each other. Highlights of the first installation opening in September include early altered Polaroids by Feminist Artist, Mary Beth Edelson; new works in glass, paper and reclaimed materials by Nancy Cohen; “hairquilts” from the 1970’s by A.I.R. Gallery founder, Patsy Norvell; and recently completed porcelain Ancestor Medallions by Gina Adams.

The Future is Female @ Dellasposa Gallery

Monday, April 15th, 2019

AWAD  celebrated women in the arts at Dellasposa Gallery exhibition ‘The Future is Female’ on the 27th of March. The event featured a talk presented by Ehryn Torrell – one of four exhibiting artists (see featured image on this page) as well as AWAD Founder & CEO Susan J Mumford.

About the exhibition /

The Future is Female presents new artworks by Alicia PazTahnee LonsdaleEhryn Torrell, and Gail Olding. All artists have a powerful message conveyed through their work that is rooted in the experience of women’s place in the world. 

The artists featured in the exhibition explore ideas of femininity and feminism. Investigating the role of women from the perspective of the past, present, and future, the artist’s multi-disciplinary works draw inspiration from contemporary visual culture with a rich and layered tapestry of cultural references from history and different locations. While gender is not the only theme found in their work, there is a common thread of women’s personal freedom of expression that weaves together the narrative of the exhibition. Through the vision of the artist’s work, we can see that the future is female.

‘The Future is Female’ is open until the 4th of May 2019.
