In our exhibit, In a Different Light: Winslow Homer & Frederic Remington, the museum features paintings and prints by Homer that were inspired by his time in Cullercoats, England. This small, coastal village was home to the fishwives, who became a popular subject for Homer. The women were strong, sturdy and essential to the local economy of the small fishing village. Similarly, the Korean island of Jeju boasts a long tradition of women engaging in dangerous physical work by the sea – the haenyeo, or female sea divers.
Join us for our next Tall Tales book discussion as we read and discuss The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See. Please read the selected book prior to the program.
