Professor Barbara Keim’s Digital Computer Graphics Exhibited Internationally
As Women’s History Month comes to a close, it’s especially important to highlight women-oriented events which took place this March. Far away from our Western Massachusetts campus, Barbara Keim’s art exhibit at the Holy Art Gallery in London showcased the talent of the Westfield State faculty member for the world.
Keim had four pieces in the gallery’s “Aura” show, all presenting an homage to another women artist – Frida Kahlo, an artist who Keim describes as a woman who persevered despite facing many hardships in her life.
She notes, “Frida Kahlo was an incredible woman of her time period” with a “profound physical and emotional essence.” This essence inspired Keim’s colorful art which aimed to draw attention to Kahlo’s ideology that “life is a gamble.”
The dazzling collection of artwork featuring intense, vibrant hues of blue, indigo, and red was on display in London February 13 – March 13 of this year.
Keim’s work has also been featured at the HMVC Gallery in New York as part of their “Women” online show which runs through the end of the month.
