"Embodying the Familiar: Power, identity and representation in woman-centered art" is curated by Kendra Acquavella. She writes that the focus of the show is the way "women 'picture' themselves […]

Members of State of the Art got extra space to show their work this past November. I took advantage and showed one of my favorite large charcoal pieces from 2006. I had just moved to Ithaca and didn't have a studio space. I worked on this in my dining room - taped to the wall. It took up so much space and made a ridiculous mess, but it felt so good to start drawing again.
