The exhibition, "Pages from the Book of Women" explores the changing definitions and politics of aging and what it means to be an older woman, The perennial youth-obsession of Western culture has led to the perception that the inevitable social consequence of aging is decline and invisibility. However, contemporary older women are re-viewing, re-thinking and generating their own definitions. Invisible? ... a laughable idea!
With models age 60 to 80 plus, from Sicamous, Salmon Arm and Kamloops, art evolved that expressed this spirit of confidence and self-awareness. Using techniques that include painting on gold leaf, Renaissance oil glazing, and screen printing this work explores the politics of age identity and communicates a fascination with the beauty of the older face.
In portraits, paintings and purses this show is a celebration of the magic of older women and a reminder that women are much more fascinating at 80 than at 18.
