Caroline Tauxe: Women’s Wealth – February 28 until March 27, 2013

Le Moyne College will host an exhibit of fiber arts and quilts by Caroline Tauxe in the Wilson Art Gallery, located in the Noreen Reale Falcone Library. The exhibit, titled “Women’s Wealth,” opens on Thursday, Feb. 28, and will run through Wednesday, March 27, and can be seen during regular library hours. The exhibit is part of Women’s History Month.

There will be an opening event on Thursday, Feb. 28, beginning at 3:30 p.m. in the Bernat Special Events Room, located in the library. Vanessa Johnson, a historian and Griot (a storyteller in the West African tradition) will perform “Foot on the Serpent,” a first-time telling of women-centered stories that transcend time and geography. Following her performance, there will be an opening reception in the Wilson Art Gallery from 4:30 – 6 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public. For more information, call (315) 445-4153.

Caroline S. Tauxe received a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Yale University and a doctorate in anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley. Her dissertation research concerned power, conflict and social change in rural North Dakota communities undergoing coal-based energy development. It was a pioneering work in what has since become the field of political ecology in environmental studies. Tauxe later conducted research in Brazil on middle-class life during hyper-inflation, and especially the challenges it posed to class identity and the morality of exchange. Tauxe currently teaches at Le Moyne College and is active in community arts development.
