Art from a Distance: Women In Conversation, at Stocker Gallery
On the night Gail Crum, Gayle Pritchard, and Jill Milenski’s exhibit Women in Conversation opened at Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Gallery, the reception was in high gear when a fire alarm cleared out the building. It was a false alarm, or maybe a harbinger of what was to come a few weeks down the road: the exhibit was halfway through its run before stay-at-home orders to slow the spread of COVID 19 effectively shuttered the gallery, along with all the rest in the state.
Crum, Pritchard, and Milenski have been exhibiting together for years, and their work shows that the women’s concerns about life and the world and family overlap quite a bit. It’s a lively conversation, and the three women have a lot to say. It is an overwhelming amount of work, addressing politics, gender equity, family history, and more.
Here’s a virtual tour:
