Event description
Two exciting series of talks on 'Discovering Women Sculptors from the 17th Century to the Present Day'.

About this Event


		Discovering Women Sculptors image

Generations of women sculptors are gradually being rediscovered and acknowledged. This talented international sisterhood, many of whom have been forgotten, have skilfully practised sculpture through the centuries. Often determined, strong and resilient, they have literally left their chisel marks and fingerprints alongside those of men on the history of sculpture.

In these two exciting series of online talks, experts in the field rediscover these women sculptors from past centuries helping to lift them from obscurity to reveal their life and work, and converse with living artists to explore the challenges facing female sculptors today.

A celebration of international women sculptors, their artistic talent and their spirit, these talks document a rich artistic heritage of which women and young girls can be proud.

Series One - there are currently fourteen talks, four further talks are still to be confirmed.

Cost of attendance is only £3.50 per talk.

All talks in Series One are free for PSSA Members join the PSSA
