Making Her Mark

This multi-media exhibition features six women artists whose work either inverts stereotypes, or undermines assumptions about personal and cultural individuality.

More about this exhibition

  • Lisa Ruyter creates brightly colored paintings based on American National Archives photography, a defining and generative archive of American identity.
  • Claudia DeMonte calls our attention to the everyday events in a women life and her sculptures reflect the perception of women as the caretakers of society.
  • Iraqi-American artist Hayv Kahraman works with calligraphy and Eastern references in her images of women.
  • The drawings of Nigerian-born Toyin Odutola, mostly of men, broaden the platform of portraiture to create a narrative of place.
  • Sarah Hinckley’s landscape abstractions impose a logic on the world that provides a meditative space.
  • Photographer Laurie Simmons challenges the viewer with her images of feminine beauty and style.

The exhibition is organized by Lauren Della Monica.
