NOV 04 Gallery Talk: Pathmakers

Enjoy discussions designed to be highly digestible!

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff.

This week, Associate Educator Adrienne L. Gayoso discusses several works in the special exhibition Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft, and Design, Midcentury and Today


This exhibition illuminates the vital contributions of women to postwar visual culture and their use of craft materials—especially clay, fiber, and metals—to explore concepts of Modernism. Featuring more than 80 works, Pathmakers focuses on women working at mid-century, as well as contemporary artists whose work reflects the influence of their predecessors.
