Please join us on Saturday, March 2 from 4-6 pm for Portrait of an Artist, a conversation with painter Catherine Graffam.
Navigating the art world as a marginalized person can be frustrating, but it is possible! Join artist Catherine Graffam as she talks about finding her life-saving creative path as a trans woman and her advice on how to kick the art world door in and make space for yourself once you're there. Graffam has recently been profiled in The Jealous Curator's new book A Big Important Art Book (Now With Women) for her emotive and personal artwork. Author Danielle Krysa acknowledges the value of Graffam’s extremely intimate and honest portrayal of her journey as a trans woman: "I have always seen Catherine Graffam's work as very brave."
Graffam has exhibited at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Clark University, the University of Rhode Island, the University of New Hampshire, and many others. She has spoken at the University of North Florida, the University of Virginia, and currently teaches at Lasell College.
