CHICAGO — Woman Made Gallery is proud to host an artist talk in conjunction with its current group exhibition ‘20 in Their Twenties’. Led by juror and solo show artist Betsy Odom, the event will feature a number of artists from ‘20 in Their Twenties’. The talk will focus on the art pieces presented in the exhibition, their relationship to one another, and to any larger understanding we have of art-making by younger women.
Betsy Odom is an artist living in Chicago. She received her MFA from Yale University in 2007 in sculpture, and a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2002. She has been in numerous group and solo exhibitions both locally and nationally. Her most recent solo shows, ‘Registry’ at ThreeWalls Gallery and ‘Sis Boom Bah’ at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago explored the ways gender is embedded within materials and within ways of making.
