Art and Academia, how does that work?

I just returned from a trip to New York. I  attended The Women’s Caucus for Art / College Art Association/ The Feminist Artist Project (WCA / CAA /TFAP) National conference, February 2011 in New York City.  WCA is the leading national organization for women in the visual arts professions. Founded in 1972, it has 27 chapters across the country and is an affiliate of the College Art Association.  Women’s Caucus is also a founding program partner of  The Feminist Art Project out of Rutgers. I’m a member of the Michigan WCA Chapter.

I don’t have enough time today to fully explore the all the topics still swirling in my head; feminism, genderism, essentialism, anachronism, individualism, activism, expressionism, and neo-realism. What should all this have to do with how I create my art?

So for now I’ll just share a sampling of images. Including photos of me with my art at the JWAN”Sanctuaries in Time” exhibit

About Babs

I consider myself a narrative artist, fascinated by the uniqueness of our human experience. Sculpture has enabled me to capture endless stories. I’m particularly seduced by the tangible qualities of Clay. Process and product are equally irresistible to me.
