Four Visions Exhibit spotlights multigenerational local artists
Art holds an important place in the history of women’s fight for the vote. Art helped to inspire and unify the suffragists who were dedicated to expanding American democracy. Today, art continues to inspire and stir others. Opening Oct. 6, the William D. Cannon Art Gallery presents Four Visions: A Celebration of the Year of the Woman showcasing four multigenerational women artists who each bring their own inspiration and vision to their work. The four artists in this anniversary exhibition challenge our assumptions of media by working with traditional, as well as unexpected materials. Many of the pieces are solid and structural while others are ethereal. Artists are Anne Mudge (sculpture), Kline Swonger (mixed-media and sculpture), Bianca Juarez (ceramics) and Marisol Rendón (drawing).
Gallery Curator Karen McGuire commented, “I think it's important to showcase artists who make me look at the world a different way. One of the privileges of being a curator is discovering new artists and bringing their beautiful works to our community.”
