Grounded

butterfliesPat Merriman

Grounded  ushered in on my  80th birthday with my COURAGE series on American Women in History. The series began with a collage of women in the early 1900’s. As an academic, I  passionately researched the history of women’s acts of courage from the early settlers to the 2016 edict that the American military can be gender neutral. As an artist, I then simplified these themes to create bold, colorful collages. “There are panels of the Suffrage movement, the Daughters of Liberty, The Trail of Tears, Latina women, African American women, and 1950’s women who read the “Feminine Mystique”– all leading toward the Equal Rights Movement.”
