Wearing their heart on their sleeve: Art professor explores culture through clothing

Langley, B.C.—On Wednesday, March 10, 2004, the public is invited to explore culture through clothing with artistic social critic and long-time TWU professor, Sharalee Regehr. Regehr, comes from a very multi-disciplinary background from which she adds energy, wit and humour to her teaching.

“Visually, her work often tells the stories of women who have been marginalized and forgotten,” says Erica Grimm-Vance, TWU associate professor of art and Art Talks external coordinator. “She tells the stories of the amazing things that women did against all odds.”

Recently Regehr has dealt with garments that women have worn through various ages reflecting the society and sociological context from which they came. Many of the garments reveal a lot about the way women have treated themselves, the way society has treated them and what will be thought of them by future generations.
