Reception for “Women of Resistance” Paintings by Vicki Chelf

Wednesday, March 20, 5-7 p.m. Free.

Vicki Chelf‘s “Women of Resistance” paintings were inspired by the discovery of a trove of old newspapers, followed by a visit to a Resistance museum in a small town in France. The paintings celebrate the little-known women heroes who were essential to the defeat of the Nazis during WWII.

They are painted in oil over the original newspapers that are collaged onto 36 x 48-inch canvasses.

Chelf will tell the stories of some of the heroes, followed by music from Suzanne Lucas and John Lambie, plus a dance performance depicting WWII hero Nancy Wake. The choreography is by Tania Vergara Perez from Endedans Contemporary Ballet.
