DESCRIPTION

Peninsula Women’s Caucus for Art Exhibition – Identity

 

Identity is our self-portrait. What surroundings, what colors, what icons, what culture defines who we are? Peninsula Women’s Caucus for Art artists are taking this opportunity to explore aspects of their Identities by using a diversity of styles. Pat Keefe chose to create her personal Kachina representing art, imagination and creativity in her collage. Marian Yap introduces her self-portrait painting with a Haiku. Lorraine Capparell’s images hum with expectancy, meaning and symbolism. Her watercolors represent what the English novelist E.M. Forester once called the “significant moment”. Works by Kris Idarius, Rebecca Lambing, Tanya Lin, Alysanne McGaffey, Yvonne Newhouse, and Bonnie J.Smith are also included.
