Gail Rebhan came of age when women faced discrimination in many fields including the arts. Children and family were often seen as encumbrance to a full-fledged commitment to the pursuit of art, yet many feminist artists began to foreground in their art their multi-dimensional lives & attachments. How do we see this in Rebhan’s work & how might it align with feminist art by other women artists of the period?
