I spent two months last fall at Penland School of Crafts in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. During my time there I worked on my Contain-Her Collection of hand-built clay pieces. The work at resemble containers of different sized and shapes. As a child of the Sixties I have spent a great portion of my life struggling against the conventions that tried to restrain me and women of my generation and beyond. Come by the Helen Day Art Center tonight to celebrate with me sixty-five years in which life has tried (and failed) to Contain-Her. Opening starts at 5PM, I will be speaking at 5:30, the opening ends at 7PM.
I hope to see you there!
