Online event—check description for link!

An Art Department Zoom event. Join at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/94133712380. Lily Wong (b.1989 Seattle, WA) is a drawing and painting based artist with a background in printmaking. Her work centers around a reimagination of personhood at the moment it becomes undone and probes at the way literal and metaphorical fracturings of the self influence the body’s relationship to pain, intimacy, desire, and structures of power. Elements of drama and fantasy are woven into vignettes that offer a glimpse into a fluctuating emotional landscape shaped by displacement, erasure, and yearning while articulating a disconnect between external presentation and private experience. Wong earned a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2011, and an MFA from CUNY Hunter College in 2020. Most recently, her work has been exhibited at Harper’s, New York, NY (2021 and 2020); Kapp Kapp, Philadelphia, PA (2021) and New York, NY (2020); Fredericks & Freiser, New York, NY (2021); Ramp Gallery, London, UK (2020); The Wunderwall, Antwerp, BE (2020); HVW8 Gallery, Berlin DE (2018); and Underdonk, Brooklyn, NY (2018). Wong currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

More Than Friends: Shaped by Flower Power

Wednesday November 10

5:30pm-6:30pm

Online event—check description for link!

Join GCC alumnae and authors Elaine Boudreau Turrentine ’81 and Joyce Yager Rubinstein ’85, featured in More Than Friends: Shaped by Flower Power for a book reading and Q&A. If you’re interested in local history, empowering women or just a good story, you won’t want to miss this discussion with some fascinating women. In the 1970s, 15 women found themselves living in a Wendell community with 300 others. They were ahead of their time in some respects—living in passive solar houses, growing organic food and buying rice and grains in bulk. In other respects, they found that the male-dominated culture of the country was present even in this counterculture. As they left, each went on to accomplish much—earning PhDs and master’s degrees and becoming RNs, corporate executives, and business owners. But years later, something drew them back together—something unique in their lives that they had experienced during that time of communal living in the Brotherhood of the Spirit/Renaissance community.
