Creative Arts of Women (CAW) opened their exhibition Creating Our History honoreing women’s history month on March 5, 2012.
The exhibition includes work by 28 CAW members, including many with CCAD connections: Mary Ann Crago (1995 Fine Arts alumna), Linda Diec (Fine Arts adjunct faculty), Helma Groot (1989 Fine Arts alumna), Roxanne Smith-Mansell (1987 Fine Arts alumna), Lisa McLymont (Continuing and Professional Studies instructor), Kristin Morris (1994-2002 Illustration alumna), and Cat Sheridan (2003 Fine Arts alumna and director of Continuing and Professional Studies).
The exhibition was reviewed by Melissa Starker for the Columbus Dispatch. She described several works, noting that “the most straightforward statement of the group comes from Cat Sheridan’s Red Tape. The floor installation, constructed of the titular material, forms a circle of slanted caution lines around the word uterus. With that, she unites the intent of the exhibition and the headlines and frustrations of the moment.”
CAW members are visual artists, performance artists, writers, arts administrators, arts supporters, and art appreciators. The objective of the group is to support each member in her individual career, be involved in community service, have group shows, share new work, and network.
Creating Our History is on view until April 20, 2012 at the Shot Tower Gallery at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center, 546 Jack Gibbs Blvd., Columbus, OH.
