Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory is co-organized by the George Eastman Museum and the Sheldon Art Galleries, St. Louis. Internationally recognized for her experimental approaches to art-making that combine craft with alternative photographic processes, Bea Nettles explores the narrative potential of photography. Often incorporating autobiographical and metaphorical elements, Nettles’s imagery references key stages of a woman’s life. Her work examines place, nature, dreams, mythology, and the passage of time. The first exhibition to survey Nettles’s fifty-year career, Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory provides a comprehensive look at the work of an artist who profoundly illuminates our inner worlds.
The exhibition is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Missouri Humanities Council, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur McDonnell, and Mr. and Mrs. Michael Scavotto.
Gallery Talk: Saturday, October 5 at 10:30 a.m.
Bea Nettles will speak on her life and work. Admission free
