FORCE OF NATURE:
Exploring the Power of the Feminine
FORCE OF NATURE was a national exhibition juried by Judith Brodsky and sponsored by the New Hampshire Chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art. The exhibition ran from July 6-August 14, 2015 at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Silver Center for the Arts located on the campus of Plymouth State University in Plymouth, NH.
The work submitted for this exhibition was encouraged to be broadly interpreted with concepts that might range from myth and legend to the personal, historical or political. Artwork considering Nature (as in Mother Nature and her natural forces), eco art and ecofeminism was also strongly encouraged.
