Intaglio printmaker Jessie Della and jeweler Samie Todd will be showing in the Prizery's Robert F. Cage Art Gallery during the month of December.
Using the duality of metal and paper Samie Todd and Jessie Della depict feminine themes. Metal working is a meticulous craft that frames their ideology. Their images derive from modern identifications of womanhood as well as depictions of women throughout art history. By using these motifs it reclaims a woman's ability to create her own sense of femininity.
