Brenau University Galleries Awarded Georgia Humanities Council Grant

Brenau University Galleries was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $2,000 for the Woman’s Work Oral History Project and Exhibition. The Georgia Humanities Council recently granted funding for humanities projects to twenty organizations from around the state. The upcoming exhibition Women’s Work is one such project.

The Women’s Work exhibition will run July 17-Sept. 12 in Sellars Gallery and will focus on the rich history of fiber arts in North Georgia and how the past informs the work of many contemporary fiber artists. Techniques traditionally considered “women’s work” such as stitchery, quilting, felting and knitting that connect the past and the present will be represented. A reception and panel discussion scheduled for July 17 will feature humanities scholar Heather Holliman and a demonstration by the North Georgia Hand Spinners Guild.
