Three Artists Work Exhibited at Douglass Library: Reception Sun. March 25, 3-5 pm

The works of artists Berenice D'Vorzon, Jacqueline Ann Clipsham and Liz Whitney Quisgard will be displayed at the Mabel Smith Douglass Library March 19 through May 7 in the final exhibitions of the 2000-2001 Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series. A reception for the artists will be held Sunday, March 25 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Mabel Smith Douglass Library. The reception is free and open to the public.

D'Vorzon, whose art addresses the spiritual connection to nature, will exhibit "Nature Into Art." Her work has been inspired by southern swamps, the Long Island wetlands, rain forests and the River Li in China.

The exhibition "B.O.O.K.: Box of Organized Knowledge Ceramic Vessels and Artists' Books" connects Clipsham's ceramic boxes to her books of porcelain and paper. Her book of writings and drawings, "Intervals and Rhythms of the Landscape," will be on hand. The book was created through a grant from the Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper.

Quisgard's exhibition, "Structure & Pattern: Sculpture," will display decorative, patterned objects. The artist uses pattern "to surprise and engage the mind seducing the eye."

Established in 1971, the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series is the oldest continuing series of exhibitions dedicated to increasing the visibility of women artists in the United States. It has featured the works of more than 225 artists.
