Please join Bea Nettles, mixed media artist, and Mary Statzer, PhD, Curator of Prints & Photographs at the University of New Mexico Art Museum, for a conversation about Bea’s life and career, spanning fifty years.

Nettles and Statzer will discuss Bea Nettles’ working process, self-representation, and how art can help the maker and the viewer negotiate life’s challenges. They will also talk about Bea’s career in broader terms and what it was like to be a trailblazing female artist and educator.

This talk, sponsored by Artists’ Alley at the McKinley Foundation, is presented on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition, Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory, at Krannert Art Museum through March 6. The exhibition is organized by the George Eastman Museum and the Sheldon Art Galleries.
