Sabra Moore, New Village artist and author will be reading selected works from Openings: A Memoir from the Women's Art Movement, New York City 1970-1992, at SOMOS, The Literary Society of Taos who strongly believe in encouraging the literary arts "because words can change worlds." Moore will feature stories about her and other artists' residency experiences at the Wurlitzer Foundation based in Taos, New Mexico, while showcasing images from the Women's Art Movement.
The issues in my book–visibility of women artists, equity, reproductive rights, the need for multiple voices–continue to reverberate and are once again current. These issues haven’t gone away.
