Through self-portraits, Holly Trostle Brigham calls attention to the challenges women artists have faced through history, illuminating the legacies of strong women of the past by blending them with her own identity and personal experiences of what it is like to be a woman and an artist today. “Brigham inspires the viewer to consider the question of self-hood and legacy more broadly and underscores the important role of “sisterhood” to the advancement of humankind,” said Shelley R. Langdale The Park Family Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings, Philadelphia Museum of Art, who wrote the forward to the exhibition’s catalog.

Brigham’s “subjects” range from the mythical figures of Cybele and Isis (the Roman goddess of fertility and Egyptian goddess of regeneration), to historical individuals, including ground-breaking fine artists such as Edmonia Lewis and Frida Kahlo, pioneering members of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), as well as lesser known women who were social, religious, and literary leaders of their day. 

Holly Trostle Brigham will show works in a solo exhibition at the Somerville Manning Gallery March 12 through April 6, 2019. 

An opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, March 15th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
