The Women of Appalachia Project will present this inaugural award to local activist Sandra Sleight-Brennan. The presentation will take place at 6PM during the opening reception for the 2016 WOAP fine art exhibition hosted by Ohio University Multicultural Center Art Gallery, Athens campus. The award will be presented by Jack Wright who is a musician, retired assistant professor of Ohio University’s School of Film, and a long time advocate of Appalachia.
According to Kari Gunter-Seymour Peterson, founder/curator of the WOAP, the award will be presented yearly to an outstanding Appalachian woman who has dedicated herself to enhancing the well being of Appalachian culture, Appalachian women’s health, Appalachian families or Appalachian land issues.
The 2016 award art was designed and produced by local artists Jessica Held and Tere Sager, well known for their mixed media, acrylic and polymer series “House of Love.”
The event is located in the Ohio University Multicultural Center Art Gallery, Second Floor, of Baker University Center.
