These three distinct exhibitions will each shed light on different generations of women artists. The Francesca Woodman exhibition presents the artist, who was raised in Boulder, coming into her creative voice and developing her singular approach to photography at a notably young age. Flora tells the story from two perspectives of the artist Flora Mayo, originally from Denver, whose work from the 1920’s had been a footnote in art history until Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler began researching her life. And, Boulder-based filmmaker Stacey Steers’ Edge of Alchemy reimagines two silent-film era actors as creative alchemists who toy with Victorian scientific instruments, flora, and fauna.

These exhibitions offer poignant and humanizing portraits of artists both well-known and under-recognized. Visitors will encounter riveting stories and unusual and striking imagery in these three varied and thought-provoking presentations.
