Eye on Artist Lecture Series: Women in Photography Panel Discussion
Join us for a panel discussion with artists Megumi Shauna Arai, Marsha Burns, C. Davida Ingram, Marilyn Montufar and Linda Wolf, moderated by BIMA Education Director Kristin Tollefson. Reception with light food and drink in the gallery will take place immediately afterward.
Women in Photography features ten women artists with several works each:
Megumi Shauna Arai
C. Davida Ingram
Heather Boose Weiss
All ten artists are from the Puget Sound region and reflect diversity in artistic processes, content, age and ethnicity. Although this exhibit is not comprehensive or reflective of the entire field, it showcases a broad range of ideas and talent. Artistic techniques include traditional darkroom, Polaroid, and digital photography; pinhole camera; living photographic prints using cyanotype medium; conceptual filmmaking; interactive installations, and Instagram feeds. The artists range in age from early twenties (Ashley Armitage) to over ninety (Mary Randlett).
Like other art media, photography has historically been male-dominated. In addition, like other arts forms such as ceramics, glass, and jewelry art, it has not always been prominent in the fine art world. Further, the field of photography is changing rapidly. It is integrated with many other forms of art, and new technology has made it so accessible and pervasive that it is influencing our relationships, social norms and structures on many levels.
Linda Wolf addresses the importance of an exhibit highlighting women in photography: "(M)y personal goals as an artist include adding to the ongoing process of empowering women and girls. This exhibition provides women artists a platform for full self-expression, and further establishes cultural norms that include, honor and respect women's perspectives."
Women in Photography is on exhibit in BIMA's Feferman Gallery through October 1, 2017.
