April 22nd General Meeting - Joyce Scott
Joyce J. Scott has been called the "Queen of Beadwork, a sculptress, a weaver, and a writer/performance artist. She has performed solo and also as one of the Thunder Thighs Revue. She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Instituto Allende in Mexico. Descended from several generations of quilters and craft artists, Scott's work is informed by her world view of equality and inclusion. Her intricate beadwork addresses social justice issues such as sexism, racial and class struggles, and genocide. In 2000, The Baltimore Museum of Art presented her 30-year retrospective and "White Light/White Heat", a collateral show of the Venice Bienale.
