I’m excited by this soon to happen panel at St Catherine’s University next week. Karen Searle is textile maven, knitter extraordinaire who has published me several times in her writings on contemporary art knitters. Erica Spitzer Rasmessen is one of my all time favorite artists. And I’ve seen only a bit of Jessica Larson’s artwork over the years but have been very drawn to her use of materials. I mentioned her, and her Women Troubles in my first blog.
Maybe I’ll see you there!
This is the information sent out by the Women’s Art Institute.
The Women’s Art Institute cordially invites you to a panel presentation:
Women’s Work and/or Feminist Statement?
Three prominent Minnesota artists will present their work and consider the question.
Erica Spitzer Rasmussen
Moderator: Patricia Olson
Since the invention of textiles in antiquity, the fiber arts have been considered women’s work, and have
therefore been designated as a minor art in western culture. Lately, they have shed their aura of domesticity
and have been embraced both by the feminist art movement and post-modern sensibilities.
Free and open to the public.
Wednesday, November 5, 7:00 pm
Lecture Hall, Visual Arts Building, St. Catherine University
2004 Randolph Avenue, St. Paul
Reception to meet the artists follows presentation.For more information: 651-690-6636 | www2.stkate.edu/studio-art/wai
