Powerhouse exhibit part of annual Sarahfest 2016 in Oxford and UM

The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies, in partnership with the Powerhouse Community Arts Center and with support from the University of Mississippi Museum, proudly presents a month-long exhibit that celebrates the art and activism of Claudia DeMonte.

In the belief that art is a bridge between community building, cultural understanding and powerful social change, DeMonte has assembled pieces that cover 40 years of her own work and curated exhibits. Her interest in exploring women’s roles in society, perceived gender expectations and standards of beauty reveals a commitment to making the invisible visible in women’s lives.

The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies is proud to share this exciting and thought-provoking exhibit with the University of Mississippi and larger Oxford community. The exhibit and artist reception are part of Sarahfest, the Center’s annual festival celebrating women’s contributions to the visual and performing arts.
