Amherst, MA, 16 March, 2009–More than 20 women who have settled upon the fertile ground of the Pioneer Valley (Connecticut River Valley) have created new artworks that will premiere in New York City at Tabla Rasa Gallery from April 18 – May 30. Many of these female artists are transplants from many parts the country, such as curator Brooklyn native, Terry Rooney (whose mother was born on the same street as the gallery), who will bring her Statue of Liberty series to New York for the first time.
Several of the Pioneer Valley artists have blazed new frontiers with their artwork and studios. Rosalyn Driscoll explores the tactile nature of sculpture and encourages viewers to touch her work. Liz Chaflin, the founder of Zea Mays, created the only independently owned non-toxic print studio in New England. Erika Zekos presents a model of her “Shedding Light” public arts project honoring farmers with a solar-powered tobacco barn, advancing “green energy.” Ruth West forged new techniques combining computer art with encaustic in her artwork. Deborah Kruger also uses encaustic in an unusual way: she invented a process using wax with fabric. Another fabric artist, Deidre Scherer creates moving images using fabric and thread, to address the issues of aging and mortality. Rachel Folsom, Elizabeth Pols and Terry Rooney push the edges of painting with their painted sculptural constructions. Belinda Lyons-Zucker adds a contemporary twist with her African wrap dolls creating an Obama supporter doll.
