WOMEN'S STORIES: LOVE, LIFE AND DREAMS
Original Exhibit Dates: February 2 to 27, 2010
Our ninth exhibit was presented in honor of Women's History Month 2010, and featured work that was varied, exciting and moving – just like the lives of women.
This exhibit brought together the work of five artists from different parts of the country (two from Sanibel) that, through their art, tell stories of women that are both personal and archetypal; shown together they present a compelling story.
Houston artist Sandra York's dreamlike abstract paintings are quiet meditations on aging and unexpected change.
The ceramists featured in this exhibit, Melisa Cadell (of Penland, NC) and Kim Alderman (of Woodstock, NY), employ their clay very differently; Cadell creates evocative figurative work, while Alderman builds iconic abstract pieces.
The two Sanibel artists, textile artist Linda Green and sculptor Leila Walker, exhibited their work for the first time in this exhibit, and presented pieces that express their feelings about relationships. Linda Green uses fabric, beading and stitching to create her story portraits, and Leila Walker's small sculptures interact both with each other and with us.
