MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) — In this segment of COCA Connection, we're talking about the Aesthetics of Elderhood: Artworks on Ageism.
Erica Thaler, with the Council on Culture & Arts, and Amy Fleming, the artist of the Aesthetics of Elderhood: Artworks on Ageism joined us to talk about the artwork.
Local printmaker, Amy Fleming has become interested in ideas surrounding ageism and disposability.
As part of her creative process, Fleming rescues lost and neglected items such as rusting gearshifts, china shards, and broken bottles. She photographs these remnants of consumer culture and incorporates them into her screenprints.
Fleming’s artwork prominently features portraits of mature women, most of them regulars at the City of Tallahassee Senior Center.
The exhibitions are free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at City Hall Galleries on South Adams Street.
