Narratives: A Woman’s Point of View
Every picture tells a story and every point of view has a particular attitude or way of considering a matter. A narrative is the choice of how to tell a story, what details to share and in what order to relate them. It is a representation or specific manifestation of the story, rather than the story itself. A narrative turns stories into information and knowledge for the recipient. In this show, we will highlight narratives, from a woman’s point of view, through art.
The WCA/NH Artist Emergency Grant program will provide $200 grants to WCA/NH artist members who have lost
