Anne Timpano’s Work Showcased in Two Exhibitions

Artwork by Anne Timpano, Director of UMW Galleries, has been chosen for inclusion in two current exhibitions, “Gendered Images: The Feminine Divine” (Sept. 8-Dec. 16, 2011) at the Doug Adams Gallery of the Bade Museum in Berkeley, CA, and “Coming Out of the Closet: Clothing Art as an Emergent Form” (Nov. 5, 2011-Feb. 26, 2012) at the Brogan Museum of Art and Science in Tallahassee, FL.  The latter exhibition is accompanied by an exhibition catalog, which includes images and curatorial commentary.

Timpano’s work borrows the figure of Venus from Botticelli’s Birth of Venus (ca. 1485) and reinvents it in a modern context.  The works on exhibit include Venus as Paper Doll, a linocut print that explores the role of women in society, and the Consumermania Series, six individual mixed-media paper dolls that are intended as commentary on our consumer-oriented society and the ease with which consumers can be manipulated.
