Short Description: 
Linda Tesner discusses the work of Alison Saar currently on exhibit at Hoffman Gallery

Host Wendy Webb speaks with Linda Tesner, Director of the Hoffman Gallery at Lewis and Clark College. They discuss Alison Saar: Bound for Glory, an exhibition exploring the sculptures and works on paper of Alison Saar. Saar’s York: Terra Incognita, a tribute to the memory of William Clark’s slave, was dedicated on Lewis & Clark’s campus in May 2010. The exhibition is up through December 12th.

  “Alison Saar is one of few contemporary artists to use the figure almost exclusively in her work—yet figurative representation is not her highest priority,” said Linda Tesner.  “She explores human impulses, cultural prejudices, and life experiences, drawing inspiration from folk art, African and Haitian aesthetics, myths and rituals from diverse cultures, American slave narratives, and music.”
