Bea Nettles Book Signing and Presentation

The exhibition career of Bea Nettles began in 1970 when her work was shown in “Photography Into Sculpture,” at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Recognition as an experimental photographic artist followed and her work has been featured in over two hundred exhibitions throughout the world. Nettles' work is found in history texts and has been regularly reviewed in the media. Over 26 public collections contain her work and she has received two National Endowment for the Arts Photography Fellowships and grants from the New York and Illinois State Arts Councils.

She has delivered lectures and workshops internationally and is widely recognized for her innovations in mixed media photography and photographic books.

On Saturday, August 10 at 3 p.m. she will be sharing her latest artists books of poetry created with surnames that she photographs in cemeteries. With these names that function as parts of speech, she has written about the seasons, American History, an interpretation of Dante's Inferno, a version of the myth of Persephone, and most recently three stories of women's lives.
