‘Femdom’ highlights graphics by women at Del Art
uring the 1960s, identity became a very hot topic for many women artists in the American art scene, especially in the vicinity of New York City. Special interest groups came into being with an emphasis on such matters as race and gender. In addition, communities of like-minded individuals arose to protest both social inequities domestically and the war in Vietnam, beyond the Pacific rim. In addition, imagery based on feminist themes became an especially important area of expression. Interestingly, womenonly collectives and galleries came into being. Several of the artists partial to this notion chose to focus on the appearance of the female body, in part or in whole. Some even turned to performance art as a supplement to their more traditional efforts. Other critical areas included the exploration of traditional roles of the mother as a caregiver and
investigations of feminine roles along mythological and spiritual lines. At Rutgers University in New Jersey, the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions published a group of original graphic prints by 20 well-known women artists. At this time and until Jan. 12, 2014, the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington is showing these artworks in a distinctive installation titled “Femfolio.” It consists of Joyce Kozloff, “Maui: Sugar Plantation,” 2007.

One of the most dramatic aspects of the exhibit is that it puts to rest any idea that modern architecture began in the ‘40s and ‘50s and had roots in the work of mid-century practitioners such as Walter Gropius and Frank Lloyd Wright. The exhibit “Léger: Modern Art and the Metropolis” shows how Léger, the son of a French cattle rancher, began working as an architectural draftsman in 1900 in Paris. He served in the military from 1902 to 1903 and applied to L’ecole des Beaux Arts, but was turned down. He attended classes at the Julien Academy as well as L’ecole des Beaux Arts and began painting and associating with other leaders of the avant-garde movement such as Marcel Duchamp, Marc “Nature Morte (Les Carnées),” Fernand Léger, 1926, oil on canvas, Chagall and Robert Delaunay. framed: 51 × 39 inches (129.5 × 99.1 cm).

tion was good and it would usher in all sorts of social improvements. Le Corbusier, who painted in his real name Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, was a serious painter, He was quoted as saying, “A good painting captures good architecture.” He was fascinated with mass-produced art and liked to show all sorts of things in everyday homes from bottles, cups and glasses. He said these shapes survived because “people liked them” and wanted things in those shapes. Le Corbusier’s painting was abstract and similar to Léger’s compositions. The two became interested in film and moving away from the static image to moving ones, having architecture flow from one side of a building to another.

She is also themes that examine life from by a digital print titled “Maui: especially concerned with the an African American female Sugar Plantation.” It refers to a notion of transcending such
biological limitations as sex and age that have otherwise limited access to opportunity for great numbers of women. The recently departed June Wayne is widely remembered for her role as the founder of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in New Mexico, back in 1960. Her prominence as an advocate for this printmaking technique energized a renaissance of interest in lithography that was further supported by her gifts as an
artist. In this show, she is represented by a print titled “Zinc, Mon Amour,” expressing her love of the metal from which her printing plate was made. Martha Wilson is both a feminist performance artist and the maker of graphic images. In this show, she offers the double portrait titled “I Make up the Image of My Perfection / I Make up the Image of My Deformity.” They present a vision of herself as
an attractive model and a view of herself beclouded with assorted blemishes. Pointedly, they reveal how overt appearance is used in our society to characterize personal identity. Today, feminism is no longer the strident stylistic direction it once was. However, the quality and depth of what its followers had to say in the language of vision still maintains its original timbre and pitch.

February 21, 2014, the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove (JJAC) will display its changing gallery exhibition, titled Birdtiques: Not Just for the Birds, in the Center’s second-floor gallery. The show features the work of Alison Auth, a freelance artist and designer from Richmond, Virginia. Birdtiques are little jewels of bird devotion. Combining salvaged wood and
architectural cast offs, bits of tin turned to flowers or flying insects, each Birdtique is one-of-a-kind. Whether for chickadees, wrens, bluebirds, or titmice, you will find a respect for the birds in these houses: no naughty perches and plenty of drainage holes, clean-out doors and hole/house sizes scaled correctly to the bird, and finally, inside of each house, a printout telling you all about your bird. Please call JJAC at 610-666-5593 ext. 101 for details. Guests may view the show during regular museum hours: TuesdaySaturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm & Sunday 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (closed Monday and major holidays). The exhibition is free with regular museum admission: $4 adults, $3 seniors (60+), $2 children (4-17).
