Bay College announces the opening of the exhibition, La Femme du Chien, in the Besse Gallery. Kristine Granger, the curator of the exhibition was an artist-in-residence at Chateau d’Orquevaux in Orquevaux France, January 2020.  “After spending a month in rural France with the other artists, I knew that a very special bond had been made and that I wanted to highlight the artwork of these very talented women.”  The exhibition includes the artwork of the women that were artists-in-residence at the same time as Granger.  It was also the first time in the history of the artist residency that all of the artists-in-residence were women.  The exhibition includes painting, drawing, photography, video, fabric/textile and installation art.  Follow the link provided to view each artist’s bio and artist statement and dates and links for the zoom artist talks:
