Join us for an artist talk with #art912 artist Sharon Norwood!
This summer, Savannah-based artist Sharon Norwood will create an installation in the Drawing Room at the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters that will investigate the story of unpaid labor, violence, and resistance in a way that counters the idealized, romanticized narratives often associated with Southern pre-Civil War homes. Through the use of ceramics and other mixed-media works, the lived experiences of the enslaved will be centered, creating a space for meaningful dialogue that acknowledges America’s complex racial colonial past. Her intervention will be the first spotlight on a contemporary artist at the site in over a decade.
This event is free and open to the public.
Telfair Museums’ #art912 initiative is dedicated to raising the visibility and promoting the vitality of artists living and working in Savannah.
