ArtTalks w/Gary Faigin: Making Waves with Wood w/Humaira Abid
February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Gage Academy of Art Artistic Director Gary Faigin on Wednesday at Capitol Cider to learn and discuss modern cultural and art trends.
Humaira Abid is a contemporary artist who was born in Pakistan. Her striking and original wood carvings examine women’s roles, relationships, and taboos from a cross-cultural perspective. She has emerged on the local art scene as a unique voice, defying stereotypes and deepening our concept of her often-misunderstood homeland. We’ll talk to her about her journey to her current material and subject matter, and the variety of responses she has received to her work, both here and elsewhere.
