The old adage ‘waste not want not’ is a mantra for Seattle born artist Marita Dingus. An artist of magnanimous spirit and vision, Ms. Dingus will give a presentation that reflects on her experience as a working artist in the Northwest, and offer insight into her creative process. This Guggenheim Fellow creates imaginative depictions of ‘discarded peoples’ in glass and fabric mediums. Through her work she explores the travails within the African Diaspora pre and post- enslavement. Her analysis is artistic and offers the hope that a society who sees through its victims will in effect see through itself.  (NWAAM)
