Legacies

Teri Donovan, Alexandra Luke, Gwen MacGregor, Isabel McLaughlin

September 09, 2017 - January 14, 2018

Legacies explores the art of Alexandra Luke and Isabel McLaughlin through the lens of two contemporary artists, Teri Donovan and Gwen MacGregor. Paintings by Luke and McLaughlin are exhibited in conjunction with MacGregor’s multi-media rendering of their words and thoughts, and Donovan’s mixed media explorations of historical and cultural imagery rela-tive to their lives and works.

The exhibition focuses on the manner in which two mid twentieth-century women artists have affected, through their art and philanthropy, not only a regional cultural landscape, but indeed are able to in-spire and feed into current discourse on artmaking, gender issues, and many aspects of the supportive structures of cultural institutions.
