Reclaiming Earth, a membership exhibition of Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) showcases the work of more than 50 female artists in altered books, textiles, photographs and paintings. Gallerist Donna Seager served as juror.
The exhibit developed from a depression-era adage: Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Or do without: Lessons from our Grandmothers. Works focus on the cultural values of conservation, preservation, and frugality practiced by our grandmothers and cultures that live in harmony with nature. The exhibit honors the 20-year local history of WEAD, which was founded by San Francisco environmental artist, Jo Hanson, who would have been 100 in 2018.
