Featured Presenters

Ida Harris
Former GPC graduate, Ida Harris is a creative artist and native New Yorker, who just so happens to be a doll maker. What initially began as a hobby, has evolved into a labor of love and exploration in the depths of emotional expression. Through trimester like phases, she conceives, gestates and births eccentric Ba'beez which convey a Black experience. In her own words, she does it for the culture. Her hopes are that the viewer connects, engages and internalizes the work

 

Amy Andrews
Amy, who is on staff at both John Hopkins University and Agnes Scott College, has been a member of numerous panels - on the intersections of folk music and social activism, women in music, et al - at these institutions. In the last year, Amy has gone solo, received national press (including being featured in Ms. Magazine's 40th Anniversary issue), chatted with the good folks of National Public Radio a few times, and completed an international tour in support of feminist bookstores. She has shared stages and opened for artists from Glen Phillips, of Toad the Wet Sprocket, to Gregory Alan Isakov, Rose Cousins, Rebecca Loebe, Robby Hecht, Joseph Arthur, and more.  For more information on Amy and her music, check out her website: www.AmyAndrewsMusic.com
