Artwork by Deborah Douglas on Exhibit at STLCC-Wildwood
Thursday, August 29, 2019
Artist Deborah Douglas is exhibiting her work at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood through Oct. 17. The community is invited to view her work and meet her during a reception held in her honor on Thursday, Sept. 5, from 4-6 p.m.
About the Exhibition
Douglas works with a variety of materials, including oil, enamel, encaustic, watercolor, ink, graphite, collage and digital prints. The consistent practice of mixing media, ideas and formal approaches is innate and familiar for her. Douglas creates works that incorporate a multitude of visual culture.
Her conceptual interests lie in the expansive issue of domesticity; typically including references to food, interpersonal relationships, and to cultural and societal issues of gender and sexual equality and empowerment. She address these issues sometimes darkly, sometimes with humor, though often with both.
