Art Notes: Talbot County Artist Elizabeth Casqueiro Work on Display at the Athenaeum


Talbot County’s Elizabeth Casqueiro will have her work on display at the Athenaeum Gallery over the next few weeks. The Alexandria-based gallery will be presenting Re:Vision as well as a lecture by the artist on January 6.

In Re:Vision, Casqueiro reflects on the emotional content of immigration and what it means to push forward with a new life while remaining pulled by the old. Using as springboard two sets of images that represent these conflicting dynamics, namely retro comic books and lifestyle ads, she investigates the power of visionary myth to propel and restrain, the relinquishing of the precious as a condition to move forward, and the struggle to reconcile who we are, how we are perceived, and who we want to become.

Athenaeum Gallery is located at 201 Prince St., Alexandria, VA. For more information, call 703.548.0035 or visit
