Women Artists: A Lecture Series in the gallery featuring professors from Capilano University

The 17th century Italian Baroque painter, Artemisia Gentileschi, challenged the accepted social roles of women of her era. This lecture traces the rise of women artists in the Renaissance and explores women's relationship to the visual arts in such roles as subject, creator, and patron.

Efrat El-Hanany (PhD, Indiana University, 2006) graduated from Hebrew University in Jerusalem with a BA in the History of Art and East Asian Studies and a BA in Education. After several years of experience teaching and developing educational programs at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, she went on to earn an MA and a PhD from Indiana University in Bloomington.

Her PhD dissertation, Beating the Devil: Images of the Madonna del Soccorso in Italian Renaissance Art, focused on issues of iconography, gender, and social and religious history. El-Hanany is also a member of the Women & Gender Studies (WGST) department at Capilano University.
