The WCA-CO Book Club is to foster under​standing of women in the arts and their contributions.​ Books will be chosen by members and discussed monthly via Zoom. We meet the second Wednesday of the month at 6 pm - 7:30 pm Mountain Standard Time. 

A few guidelines–

Mute yourself until called on. Use chat to pose questions. You don't have to have read the book. Books chosen should be available in the Public Library, used or available to download. Newer books will be considered when they become available in paperback. WCA ratings for a past book club selection are tallied at the end of the discussion with the members present and rounded to the nearest whole number out of a total of 5.

If you are interested in–

  1. Co-hosting a meeting

Eva Hesse:
One More then One

Host: Laura Morrison

CoHost: Annette Coleman

Eva Hesse (1936–1970) was one of the foremost women artists of the twentieth century. Her artistic practice combined the seriality and reduction of 1960s Minimalism with emotion, sensuousness and physicality, while the transparency and transience of her unconventional materials also contributed greatly to her unique position in the art world of her day

“Photographer Sally Mann's book 

Hold Still 

Host: Allicette Torres 

CoHost: Annette Coleman

 

One of the great portraits of the American South. Written in her pitch perfect prose style, it is a textbook of illumination and desire for anyone who hears the siren call of art beckoning to them. It's southern to the bone, hell on wheels.
