Visible Knowledge: Women’s World in Art

January 24 – February 18, 2000

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

Curated by Lucia Sanroman

An exhibition in conjunction with UVic’s Women’s Studies Department presenting works by faculty and students. A celebration of the 20th anniversary of Women’s Studies at the University.

The exhibit presents pieces that embody the personal and professional growth, changes and challenges of these alumni as a result of being part of Women’s Studies. This is a multi-media exhibit featuring works in soapstone, ceramics, traditional and abstract painting and drawing to reflect the variety of experiences of the artists. The artists were chosen because their work represents different approaches to art making as a way of developing a personal, fundamentally female way of understanding, of creating knowledge, and ultimately of affecting reality.
