ART TOPICS - Invisible Women

Presenter: Barbara Tomlinson, Ph.D. 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 @ 1:30pm - via Zoom

How is it possible for a figure to be in a painting and yet not be there?  If the figure is a Black Woman it is very much possible.  Come see how for centuries the Black female has been “invisible” in Western Art.
