Opening Thursday, February 25th, at 4PM
Please join Bea Nettles, mixed media artist, and Mary Statzer, PhD, Curator of Prints & Photographs at the University of New Mexico Art Museum, for a conversation about Bea’s life and career, spanning fifty years.
Nettles and Statzer will discuss Bea Nettles’s working process, self-representation, and how art can help the maker and the viewer negotiate life’s challenges.
They will also talk about Bea’s career in broader terms and what it was like to be a trailblazing female artist and educator.
This talk, sponsored by the McKinley Foundation Artists’ Alley, is presented on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition, Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory, at Krannert Art Museum, on view through March 6. The exhibition is organized by the George Eastman Museum and the Sheldon Art Galleries.
