Still The One
For this exhibition, ArtRage Gallery sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. Still the One addresses urgent questions: what exactly is “activism” and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.
Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Patricia Bergan, Carol Rizzo Berrigan, Dolores Ann Brulé, Joan Netta Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Caroline Lillian Johnson Colvin, Amy Sinbad Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Berkman Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo “Miyo” Hirano, Charlotte Jackie “Chuckie” Holstein, Joyce Frances Day Homan, Joyce Eileen Stokes Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian J. Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances McMillian Parks, Dorothy “Dotty” Morrison Pearl, Margaret “Marge” Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany and Mary Ann Zeppetello.
