Enjoy this studio visit with Haworth where Jann Haworth is interviewed on her inspiration for her upcoming exhibition: Jann Haworth | March

Modern West Fine Art will premier March by Jann Haworth for September gallery stroll. Inspired by the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and her 2009 single frame comic strip featuring women of distinction, Mannequin Defectors, Haworth’s current body of work is an integration of her past concepts informing new ideas. Pushing the boundaries of the medium of discarded materials, she uses cardboard to echo the possibilites of protest. These mixed media pieces utilize peripheral and fringe materials and invite the viewer to reexamine the potential of artistic mediums and how it speaks to the subject matter. The opening reception will be during September Gallery Stroll on Friday, September 15 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. and will be on display through October 14, 2017.
