Submitted by on February 5, 2013 – 8:18 am

Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute presents In/Visible. Women of Two Worlds, on view through March 10, 2013.


Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Young Woman in a Pink Skirt, c. 1845–50, Oil on canvas, The Clark

In/Visible is the second of the Clark’s uCurate exhibitions and features an intriguing look at the worlds of women. The exhibition was created by Ashley Smith, a clergywoman from Stephentown, New York. Smith’s show considers the different worlds and experiences of many of the women featured in works from the Clark’s permanent collection. One world is comprised of women who are dressed and prepared to be seen and admired; they have sought out the painter’s eye and are ready for the eye of the beholder. The other world is made up of more typically “invisible” women: washerwomen, fisherwomen, women who are servants, women who are performers and thus seen to make a living, and women whose status is unknown but who appear worn down by life. http://clarkart.edu
