In conjunction with the 2020 Women’s show, O’Hanlon Center for the Arts presents an evening with Fairfax resident and founding member of the Woman’s Building and Feminist Studio Workshop, Marguerite Elliot.
Marguerite will be in conversation with fellow artist and NCWCA’s Exhibition Chair, Elizabeth Addison.
In addition to sharing examples of Marguerite’s own art, the program will highlight the work of other women artists Marguerite knew back in the 1970’s as well as other artist she is in touch with now, whose work tackles the pressing issues of the day and confronts conventional thinking.
“I am grateful to have been on the forefront of the second wave of feminism. We broke many rules, upset many established conventions, and shook up the art world. My work continues to question the norm and confront stereotypes, with a focus on environmental issues.”
Marguerite will be interviewed by her friend and NCWCA colleague, artist Elizabeth Addison. Their conversation will shine a light on why she and other feminist artists continue to address urgent issues that affect all of us today.
