Race: through clay and conversation
Artists Kathleen Dustin and Donna Greenberg relax after installing an exhibit of seven black and seven white women who used artistic expression to confront the issue of race. The exhibit at the 2 Villages Art Society in Contoocook, NH opens this Saturday. Read the story and see the art here in the Concord Monitor.
The women have met online every other week since early 2020. Repair, despair, awaken, rise – these are some of the words that came up as we grappled with the thorny issues of racial justice in the United States. We each chose one word to illustrate in polymer.
My word was feeling and I show our members working through strong emotions. Each square is a silk photo transfer on polymer.
The exhibit begins on Saturday, runs through November 13, and will travel to other venues in 2022. More about the group on Instagram
