There’s a new art show in town! Or, in the next town over. Partly in conjunction with my Women and Gender in Art History class and partly in collaboration with the Salina Art Center, the Kansas chapter of The Feminist Art Project is sponsoring an exhibition entitled “Working on the Bias.” The exhibition explores themes of gender and identity through work that physically or conceptually incorporates stitched, woven, or embroidered elements. Artist and Watson Gallery director Carolyn Wedel and I curated this showing of work by regional artists as a pendant to a national touring exhibition, “A Complex Weave: Gender and Identity in Contemporary Art,” currently on display at the Salina Art Center.
Exhibition runs February 22-April 21, 2013
Watson Gallery, Stiefel Theatre
