Empowerment through Art. Transformation. Beauty and meaning in all the bits and pieces of life. Betye Saar has long been at the forefront of mixed media assemblage art, and her daughters Lezley Saar and Alison Saar have taken up the torch themselves, adding their individual emphases. This artistic dynasty might work in different styles—from sketchbook spreads to sculptures that incorporate vintage bottles and mini skillets, and even 3D installations with sound—but their paths often converge in themes of identity, spiritualism, and history. Their striking works reference popular culture and family traditions, as well as changing views about gender, feminism, and race. In this calendar, each artist is celebrated with four of her thought-provoking contemporary works.
