You are invited to this intergenerational exhibition centered around the Seven Species (Wheat, Barley, Grapes, Figs, Pomegranates, Olives, Dates) and the artists' collective relationships to femininity, fertility, resilience, and growth.

This circle of women artists, including matriarch and renowned sculptor Nancy Schön, stretches across three generations of the Schön family.For this family of Jewish woman artists these concepts reappear time and again in their daily routines, spiritual lives, and artistic pursuits.Their work demonstrates the themes of strength and womanhood and explores how each plant's virtues embody and reflect the artists' interconnected growth.  

Utilizing their diverse talents in various media including paint, clay, dance and mosaic, the artists present a feminist reimagining of the seven species.

This exhibit will be on display July 29 - Sept. 15, 2022 at the Brandeis Kniznick Gallery, 515 South Street, Waltham, MA, 02453. Open viewing hours will be from 10am-3:00pm, Monday through Thursday.  Appointments are encouraged.
