WOMEN IN ART
May 11, 2015
Interview with Rebecca George by Sally Deskins
Rebecca George is exhibiting in Feminism Plural at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, opening Friday, May 15, 2015. She generously shares with Les Femmes Folles about taking her career in her own hands founding The Art House, feminism in her work, stellar advice for being an artist, and much more…
Where are you from? How did you get into art?
I’m from the south side of Chicago– I’ve been interested in drawing since I can remember. I pursued it throughout high school and college, which led to teaching art as well.
Tell me about your upcoming show and why it’s important to you.
Feminism Plural at Woman Made is an opportunity to exhibit with a group of talented and innovative women artists around the subject of being a woman. In recent years, my work has explored related themes of the female body, identity, cultural conditioning and impermanence. This will be the first show I’ve participated in where all the artists are women and the work is all related somehow to being a woman.
