Join us for a panel discussion with artists Marsha Burns, C. Davida Ingram and Linda Wolf, moderated by BIMA Education Director Kristin Tollefson. Reception with light food and drink in the gallery will take place immediately afterward.
Women in Photography features ten women artists with several works each:
Megumi Shauna Arai
C. Davida Ingram
Heather Boose Weiss
All ten artists are from the Puget Sound region and reflect diversity in artistic processes, content, age and ethnicity. Although this exhibit is not comprehensive or reflective of the entire field, it showcases a broad range of ideas and talent. Artistic techniques include traditional darkroom, Polaroid, and digital photography; pinhole camera; living photographic prints using cyanotype medium; conceptual filmmaking; interactive installations, and Instagram feeds. The artists range in age from early twenties (Ashley Armitage) to over ninety (Mary Randlett).
Like other art media, photography has historically been male-dominated. In addition, like other arts forms such as ceramics, glass, and jewelry art, it has not always been prominent in the fine art world. Further, the field of photography is changing rapidly. It is integrated with many other forms of art, and new technology has made it so accessible and pervasive that it is influencing our relationships, social norms and structures on many levels.
Linda Wolf addresses the importance of an exhibit highlighting women in photography, my personal goals as an artist include adding to the ongoing process of empowering women and girls. This exhibition provides women artists a platform for full self-expression, and further establishes cultural norms that include, honor and respect womens perspectives.
Women in Photography is on exhibit in BIMA's Feferman Gallery through October 1, 2017.

Linda will join friends and colleagues from afar to celebrate June Millington, co-founder of Fanny, on February 21st for an extraordinary afternoon of performances as we celebrate her remarkable life as a Filipina immigrant, rock ‘n roll pioneer, catalyst in the women’s music movement, impassioned educator and godmother to the next generation of women in the music business.
Beginning with her childhood in Manila, the retrospective weaves narrative, video, photos and performances into a rich musical tapestry that will take you on a journey through June’s life, culminating in a rare performance by members of Fanny. The evening will conclude with a tribute by students and alumni from the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA), a non profit teaching organization co-founded by June and her partner, Ann Hackler.

The exhibition takes visitors on a walk through June’s life with immersive photographs, letters, concert posters, albums, and instruments as well as interactive video and audio installations.
