Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory
by Edited by Jamie M. Allen and Olivia Lahs-Gonzales with additional texts by Bea Nettles and Amy L. Powell
Description

A survey of ground-breaking mixed-media photography, spanning a half century of innovative perspectives that push the boundaries of how we define photography. // From her hand-colored, machine-stitched photographic prints to her artist’s books and well-known Mountain Dream Tarot card deck (the first-known photographic treatment of the tarot) Bea Nettles’s work has always upended tradition. Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory presents the span of her art across half a century, in conjunction with an exhibition co-organized by the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York, and the Sheldon Art Galleries in St. Louis, Missouri. // Recognized for her innovations in mixed-media photography, Nettles used alternative photographic processes that produced textured works, with subjects including self-portraits; investigations of the body and its relationship to nature and landscape; and the experience of mothering, loss, and aging. A tremendously productive artist, Nettles has received critical acclaim, and her work has become part of museum permanent collections from coast to coast. Now, for the first time in her fifty-year career, "Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory" offers a large-scale retrospective of an artist who profoundly illuminates our inner worlds. // 272 pages | 10.5 x 9.5 | 196 color photos, 92 b&w photos
