Today’s guest is Carrie Brummer from www.artiststrong.com. Carrie was originally an art teacher in school, but then moved into a more administrative position. She started a blog about art in her spare time and discovered that people all over the world wanted to learn to draw and paint. That blog later became known as www.artiststrong.com where Carrie formed a community and taught people to draw through her online courses.
Carrie Brummer talks about her current project which was inspired by a visit to the US National Archives.
While living in the Middle East, Carrie formed an online community called Artists Strong, to stay in touch with more artists.
The US National Archives revealed images of women in the 1940s who had taken jobs that were traditionally taken up by men, however with the men away at war, the women took up the jobs. Curiously the photographs provided no further information such as names of the sitters. It was the absence of this information that Carrie was drawn to, and her art work now celebrates these women. Her art uses a range of crafting skills which she says were also traditionally associated with women.
In this episode she talks about working towards an exhibition in Ottawa.
