About the Event

My sculpture titled "Awry" was accepted into the Women's Art Institute's 20th Anniversary Exhibition.  Its making started with the intention of a Brigid's Cross, which is a traditional symbol hung in homes to call in protection for the home from outside forces. This “Brigid’s Cross" had a mind of its own, however, and became a commentary on what happens if what is occurring IN the home is the actual problem. 

In this juried show, 60 artists, all past participants of the Women’s Art Institute (WAI), present their visual interpretation of the question, “what is forbidden?”
