Framed by Feminists, a market of affordable feminist art with socially-minded programming, was held at Gladstone Hotel Ballroom on October 28, 2018. It ran as an alternative art experience to the international art fair known as Art Toronto. Framed by Feminists provides an egalitarian and inclusive space for artists and art lovers to engage without the high cost of participation.
Vendor Spotlight: CAROL BARBOUR
“My current work is inspired by Renaissance art and emblem books. I will be showing artworks that both celebrate and dismantle portrayals of women in historical art.”
Carol showed an altarpiece titled “Birth of the Child,”a painting on wood titled “Emblema Femina,” along with limited edition multiples and reproductions of the paintings. In addition to the artwork, copies of her new poetry book “Infrangible” and early artist books were available for sale at Framed By Feminists.
