The Rise of the Feminine: SHE VOWS
Please join us for a special presentation by visiting artist Sarah Hewitt. Hewitt’s works and manifesto, SHE VOWS, question old-school boundaries established by the art intelligentsia. Hewitt weaves and cuts into these “classifications.” She has willingly and handily accepted the term “hybrid.” Using laborious handcrafts, sacred rituals, mass-produced materials, and vivid colors the artist leads us into a conversation about art/craft/feminism/gender and sexuality. Hewitt is about the rise of the feminine and honoring our matri/patrilineal lines.
Sarah Hewitt lives in between New York and Maine. Her work has been exhibited throughout the country. Recent exhibitions include Kindred Beasts at the Everson Museum, and Accidents into Incidents at Momenta Art. Hewitt has received awards and residencies from the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Vermont Studio Center, Purchase College/SUNY, Quimby Colony and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. She was recently nominated for a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant.
This lecture is presented as part of the Rozsa Van Evera Distinguised Lecture Series.
