Women’s Works

Women’s Works featured works by prominent women’s authors, illustrators, and sculptors/artists, including Harriet Beecher Stowe, Emily Dickinson, Louisa May Alcott, Edith Warton, Kate Greenaway, Dorothy Doughty, and Elizabeth Gould. Exhibit in the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College, April 2 – June 7, 2012, and part of the Art Hop, a program of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo.

Artwork showcased on design by Françoise Gilot. I love her artwork and this piece is so dynamic. I photographed the art, which is a strong piece to represent the works of strong and prominent female artists.  It is one of the silkscreen illustrations Ms. Gilot made for Colette’s novel “Break of Day.”

The Rise of Enlightened Sexism

This poster advertised a lecture by Dr. Susan J. Douglas, author of The Rise of Enlightened Sexism.  The departments sponsoring the event wanted the poster to have the same imagery as Dr. Douglas’ book cover.  Her publisher sent me the photo of the boxing girl and I chose the closest font I had to reflect the title. To say I designed this poster would be a stretch since the original elements are in the book cover.
