Oklahoma State University Foundations hosts art exhibit reception Thursday

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Oklahoma State University Foundation is hosting a reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday for the art exhibit, Femfolio, said Susan Anderson, OSU Foundation director of special events.

“Art history professor Louise Siddons coordinated Femfolio in the Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery,” said Anderson.

Femfolio is a portfolio of prints by 20 women artists whose work changed the face of American art, Siddons said. These women artists created the feminist revolution in art during the 1970s.

“The diversity of their work challenges ideas of the 'feminine' and makes it clear that women artists were at the heart of major aesthetic and intellectual movements throughout the late twentieth and into the twenty-first century,” Siddons said.

The Oklahoma State University Museum of Art is partnering with the OSU Foundation and the Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery to present Femfolio. This is an opportunity to revisit the collection after it was acquired in 2009 and displayed at the Gardiner Art Gallery inside OSU’s Bartlett Center for the Visual Arts. The portfolio was produced by the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

The Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery is a public exhibition gallery housed inside the OSU Foundation, 400 S. Monroe.  

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
