EAU CLAIRE -- A lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire March 11 is intended to shed light on the often-overlooked world of women composers, musicians and artists of the 17th and 18th centuries.
In honor of Women's History Month, "Finding the Lost Mistresses of Music and Art" will be presented at 4:30 p.m. in the Phillips Recital Hall of the Fine Arts Center.
The lecturer will be Dr. Barbara Jackson, professor emerita from the University of Arkansas. Jackson is a dedicated musician and author whose work has been devoted to uncovering the history of women in music and art.
Jackson, along with discussing numerous works by women composers and showing slides of paintings by women artists, will speak on reasons why women musicians and artists have had less attention focused on them throughout history.
Sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, the department of music and theatre arts and the Office of Women's Studies, the lecture is free and open to the public.
For more information, contact the Office of Women's Studies at (715) 836-5717 or professor Nanette Lunde at (715) 836-2159.
