The first of three exhibitions celebrating the work of women photographers is being held at the Fox Talbot Museum in Lacock.
2018 is the centenary of Women’s suffrage and the National Trust is celebrating it with a series of programs under the banner Women and Power. The Fox Talbot Museum will be presenting three exhibitions of photographic work by women throughout the year.
Lori Vrba, a North Carolina based photographer and curator has created an exhibition in a range of styles and techniques that reflect photography as it is being practiced today.
Lori said: ‘Our work is feminine without apology. We are drawn to that romantic notion of story-telling, memory, nostalgia, the natural world and family. As artists, we come together within our medium for inspiration, collaboration, postulation, and celebration. This connection provides a deep well of power that we as makers are strengthened and sustained by. It is our commitment to Tribe that not only elevates the work itself but keeps us moving to the lunar rhythms of a passionate and sensitive creative life.’
‘TRIBE’ is on display at the Fox Talbot Museum in Lacock from Saturday 3 February to Sunday 20 May and is free with normal admission to the property.
The Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey is open to visitors throughout the year. National Trust members and under 5s go free. Lacock is near Chippenham, Wiltshire SN15 2LG. For more information, visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lacock
