Roe v. Wade - Closing Reception. Talking with artist Rebecca Slivinsky


For this National Call for Entry, artists were prompted to submit artwork on the theme of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision that outlawed restrictions on abortions. They were prompted: Why is Roe v. Wade important to you? And does its relevance change with the very real threat of its repeal? This exhibition is presented in conjunction with guest curators Heather MacRae, Chela Gutierrez, and Jeremiah Jossim.

Rebecca Slivinsky (b. 1993, United States) will be receiving an M.F.A. in painting in 2019 from The Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA. She received a B.A. in studio art from Albertus Magnus College, New Haven, CT in 2015. Slivinsky is a multi-media artist that questions an ideal standard of beauty that is forced upon women within western culture in searching for the correlation between unrealistic beauty expectations and the ways in which women are portrayed in the media. She has exhibited work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States and internationally. In 2017, she studied in Lacoste, France. Currently, Slivinsky lives and works in Savannah, GA.

Rebecca Slivinsky’s painting, “Eradication,” strategically obscures the woman’s image.
