Reception for the Art of Friendship

Sat, May 26 2018 - 4:30pm to 6:30pm
Location: 
Jannotta Gallery, Oresman Gallery

These seven women arrived at Smith College in 1969 from California, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, South Dakota, Texas, and Washington. Living together in an inspiring creative community strengthened their belief in the importance of art in their lives. They have shared their intellectual and personal lives as artists and friends in a 50-year conversation, forging artistic paths as varied as their backgrounds. Their careers evolved to encompass painting, printmaking, sculpture, architecture, fashion design, graphic design, digital art, production design, cake design, and public art. The scale of their work ranges from intimate to grand. It is personal and public, meditative and political, delightful and profound. The Art of Friendship celebrates the range and agility of their practice on the occasion of their 45th Reunion.
