Maine Women Pioneers III: Vanguard

My work was recently included in a selective group exhibition at the University of New England Art Gallery, Maine Women Pioneers III: Vanguard, from Oct. 12 - Dec. 16, 2012.

About the exhibition:

"Maine Women Pioneers III is co-curated by Anne B. Zill, Gael May McKibben, and Andres A. Verzosa. This exhibition is the third on this subject in the history of The University of New England Art Gallery. The four categories - Vanguard, Homage, Worldview and Dirigo - have four distinct conceptual frameworks.

Vanguard, the first exhibition in the series, featured avant-garde, experimental and innovative works by nine Maine artists who offer insights into the future using mixed media, conceptual installation, performance and video elements. The artists featured were: Susan Bickford, Diana Cherbuliez, Amy Stacey Curtis, Alicia Eggert, Lauren Fensterstock, Lihua Lei, Julie Poitras Santos, Carrie Scanga, and Ling-Wen Tsai."
