Family Matters: Three Generations of Women
by Suzanne Hodes

June 19 - September 25, 2013

Kniznick Gallery, Women's Studies Research Center, Brandeis University

Waltham-based artist and activist Suzanne Hodes' paintings, drawings, and prints collectively examine the legacy of three generations of women in her family, beginning with the artist’s grandmother, who immigrated to New York from Lithuania in 1904, and including her mother and herself.  Hodes is one of the founders of the Waltham Mills Artists community, which occupies two reclaimed textile mills in downtown Waltham where Hodes has kept a studio for more than 30 years. She has also been a lifelong activist, including the co-founder of Artists for Survival, a group that educated the public about the dangers of nuclear arms for 15 years.
