Upcoming Exhibition

Works on Paper Gallery

“Women’s Work” explores the role of 21st century female artists in Southeast Africa as advocates of economic, social, and cultural sustainability. Against the backdrop of arts that have historically been considered “women’s work,” such as pottery, beadwork, and mural painting, this exhibition highlights the stories of 5 artists from Kenya and South Africa and explores the role of art production in both past and present through historical examples and contemporary expressions.

This project is  sponsored by a grant from the Lilla B. Morgan Memorial Endowment, which works to enhance the cultural development and atmosphere for the arts at Colorado State University.
