According to Nette Thomas, “Conceptual Confluence is an exhibition exemplifying the flowing together of concepts indicative of culture and gender.”  The works in the show include a variety of styles, techniques and media that depict images associated with both cultural and feminine issues.  In this context of culture and gender, Eleta Caldwell makes personal, political and social statements with her three dimensional mixed-media wreaths, as well as Nette Thomas and her renderings of “Laced In Ladies.”

In her colorful collage creations, Evelyn Graves pays tribute to black culture’s musical contribution of jazz.  Fiber artist, Liz Cenedella, “paints” with fabrics, often collected from other cultures, to create quilts and wall hangings.  Florence Wint enjoys combining bold African fabrics with paint and other materials to make artworks that tell stories. All five artists exhibit their work widely in regional galleries and museums and are active in local arts organizations.
