Crossing the Threshold

Crossing the Threshold
November 9 – December 11, 1998
Public Lecture by Bernice Steinbaum – Thursday, November 12, 8 pm, Dana Auditorium. Reception following in the Art Gallery, Hege Library.
This major traveling art exhibition celebrates the strength and resolve of thirty-one women artists, whose ages range from seventy to one-hundred and five years young, who persevered throughout the twentieth century and created a visual legacy for the future millennia. The works in the exhibition range from paintings by publicly well known figures like Helen Frankenthaler and noted feminist Miriam Schapiro, to Mohawk basket maker Mary Adams, to African American painter and educator Lois Mailou Jones. Curated by Bernice Steinbaum, director and co-owner of the Steinbaum Krauss Gallery in New York City, the exhibition at Guilford is exclusively sponsored by the Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation of Greensboro.
