I am happy to announce that my artwork, Leaf Stack #24, which is part of my Leaf Stack series, has been accepted into the North x Northwest 2020 exhibition. The theme for the exhibition is “Women’s Work.” The exhibition will be held at the Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, MT.
Jill Ahlberg Yohe, Associate Curator of Native American Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, was the juror. She selected 61 artworks from 441 entries in a wide range of media.
“Women’s work is everywhere and in everything we do, yet often remains invisible, unrecognized, marginalized, and undervalued. Encompassing nearly every medium—painting, video installation, textiles, sculptures, photography and beyond—this exhibition brings together exceptional works of art created by contemporary makers. It reveals an alternative, and a moment to liberate ourselves and think anew. It celebrates the creative, innovative, and always-changing landscape of women’s experience, inviting viewers to consider women’s contributions to our histories, communities, art, humanity, and planet.” - Jill Ahlberg Yohe
Due to the Covid-19 virus lockdown, the original dates for the North x Northwest exhibition have been extended. The display will be up from May 28 – October 4, 2020. Currently, the museum is asking people to schedule visits, as they are limiting the number of people in the museum to 30 at a time. They also ask people to wear masks and observe a social distance of 6 feet. An artist reception is tentatively scheduled for September 17th.
