Power & Restraint: A Feminist Perspective on Mormon SisterhoodNovember 01, 2018 - January 31, 2019
Roanoke, Virginia artist Page Turner collects items of deep personal meaning to painstakingly create delicate objects that honor the feminine, and the desires, experiences and roles of women. Raised as a devout Mormon, she looks to the Church and its complex history as inspiration. Her works are informed by the traditional hand-working skills that have been passed down through the Mormon generations. In this body of work, Turner explores the divide between righteousness within the faith and women’s personal power; with deep reverence, she pays homage to the original pioneer women of the Mormon Church, as well as the contemporary sisterhood.
Turner has exhibited widely in the Roanoke area, in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, New York, Kentucky and in North Carolina. She was the cover artist for Exponent II (Winter 2014), and has been featured in six times since 2011 in Studio Visit Magazine, blogs and other media.
Turner’s Power & Restraint: A Feminist Perspective on Mormon Sisterhood was commissioned and exhibited by the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University.
