Tall Tales | The Island of Sea Women
A thoughtful book discussion making connections between art and literature.
First 10 households to register receive a free copy of the book!*
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.
