Vernissage and Artist-guided gallery tour: May 4 at 6 pm
Art Hive with Marcia Pitch (in-person): May 6, 10:30 am to 1 pm

The centrepiece of the exhibition “The Invisible Woman” is a sculpture, which features a larger than life abstracted shape of a housecoat with nipples, but no defined body. As a woman in my mid 70’s, I notice myself disappearing in the eyes of others, and fear my voice becoming a whisper. I know many aging women, who find their value diminished in this youth oriented society, share this feeling of not being seen. I’ve created a body of sculptural and collage work around the idea of the
invisible woman. In this work, the elements of the figure are jumbled and rearranged, to suggest the new and ongoing possibilities available, even as our bodies change.

Marcia Pitch is a visual artist living and working in Vancouver. Having received her B.F.A. from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, she attended the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California and the University of British Columbia, obtaining her teacher’s training in Art Education. She has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows across Canada. A recipient of several Canada Council Visual Arts Grants, her work is in many private and public collections in North America and represented in numerous catalogues. Ms.Pitch’s work continues to be on the “cutting edge” of contemporary art – presenting a unique, penetrating and powerful vision of our society.
