Jade Lamoreaux, UAF Department of Art BFA student presents “In Spite Of” in the UAF Art Gallery from Monday, November 6, 2023 through Friday, November 17, 2023 featuring woodblock relief prints and animations that highlight women’s issues and strengths.
Lamoreaux will be hosting a reception for the opening of “In Spite Of” on Friday, November 10th from 6-8 p.m. in the UAF Art Gallery. Her work addresses sexism and how women support women, and she describes her exhibition as a “thank you letter” to the women who raised, cared for, and inspired her.
Lamoreaux metaphorically connects plants and women’s struggles, saying that “the dark sinuous hands are a visual representation of those destructive, looming stereotypes, expectations, and harassments that are omnipresent. I want to convey my deep appreciation for those who show strength in harsh environments. My admiration for them is expressed in my work through Alaskan plants that overwinter in a place so inhospitably cold and dark.”
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Art Gallery is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. All exhibitions are free and open to the public. The Art Gallery is located at 1706 Tanana Loop in the Fine Arts Complex.
