Margaret Lynne Ausfeld and Alice Novak will lead a short course about the work of women artists, from beloved Alabamians Anne Goldthwaite and Clara Weaver Parish – who lived into the twentieth century – to artists practicing today. For the exhibition Women’s Work, the Museum has drawn upon its holdings of works on paper to explore the creations of women painters, print-makers, and sculptors that are often not on view. The course will examine the social changes of the early to mid-20th century when women moved beyond employment in the home, and into the salaried, working world. As women achieved more financial independence and responsibility, social recognition of their varied roles— including that of artist—profoundly impacted our culture. Addressing an array of subjects, techniques, styles, and media, the program will demonstrate women artists moving into America’s art world mainstream, where they are now trendsetters as never before.
