Wallace mixes personal allusions to her family and her path as a photographer with historical parallels in five digital collages. This monthly online event brings together female artists and distinguished guests to discuss their work with BMA and National Museum of Women in the Arts instructors. The series was initiated by BFA '99 Mary Ann Anderson, who is also the curator of photography at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
Anderson has organized several exhibitions featuring women photographers, including "American Photographers 1839-1939: A Biographical Dictionary" (2004). She has also written extensively on women photographers, including articles for American Photography magazine and Art Institute of Chicago Research Journal.
The current show's moderator is Elizabeth Waller, deputy director of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Waller is responsible for organizing major exhibitions and programs for the museum, including its largest project to date, "America's Women Artists: 1750-1950."
Waller is a graduate of Brown University and received an MFA from Yale University. From 1995 to 1999, she served as director of photography at the Brooklyn Museum, where she organized more than 20 exhibitions including "Edward Weston: A Retrospective."
Before joining the National Museum of Women in the Arts in 2000, Waller worked for seven years as a staff photographer at the Brooklyn Museum.

Elizabeth I became queen at age 25. She inherited a country in crisis: nearly bankrupt after years of war; without a male heir. She also brought to the throne an intellectual interest in other countries and their cultures that had never been seen before in England. Under her leadership Britain waged two major wars (in France and Ireland) and established trade relations with all over Europe and beyond.
She died at age 60, but not before seeing her country become one of the world's leading powers. Her legacy includes building a vast network of trade routes known as the British Empire, which still exists today.
Elizabeth was the only English monarch to survive into adulthood. Her death in 1603 led to one of the most famous controversies in history: who will be next? At the time Mary, Queen of Scots, was imprisoned for plotting against Elizabeth. Some members of the English nobility wanted to put Prince Henry, Elizabeth's nine-year-old son, on the throne instead. But the crown went to James VI of Scotland, who would become James I of England.

However, the National Portrait Gallery will conduct a "Pre-Raphaelite Sisters" exhibition later in 2019, studying the lives of the Brotherhood's female associates in what promises to be an intriguing presentation. These women's paintings are frequently disregarded and have been waiting for an exhibition for far too long. They deserve to be seen by more people and for their contribution to art history to be acknowledged.
Pre-Raphaelitism was a movement within English art from about 1847 to about 1855 that had a profound influence on modern painting. Its leading figures were John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Although all three were interested in medieval art, they sought to revive the energy and freedom of Renaissance painting. Critics often call them the "three kings of Victorian art".
Rossetti was the most important artist in the group and is considered the father of Pre-Raphaelitism. He was born on April 23, 1829 in London to well-to-do parents who owned a bookstore. From an early age he showed an interest in art and music and learned to play the piano. In 1843 his family moved to a large house with a garden in Hampstead, which became a meeting place for artists and writers. Here he spent many happy hours drawing from nature, reading poetry, and listening to musicians playing in the neighborhood.
