Exhibit Details

Art is interlaced in the history of women’s education. Academies used it to refine girls into ladies, and colleges instructed women in it for beautifying their future homes. An Educated Woman salutes the artistic endeavors of the women students of Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee and showcases pieces such as paintings, painted ceramics, and textiles ranging from the early nineteenth century to the 1920s.
