“Appalachian Spring” seeks to give agency to the women of Appalachia, from New York to Georgia, and highlight the rich heritage that the region has contributed to American culture, as well as the stereotypes it has perpetuated. Despite its poverty, religious misconceptions, perceived political leanings and propensity to be taken advantage of for its natural resources, Appalachia is filled with a distinction and beauty that is often overlooked.
Ali Printz uses vintage photographs and sculptural fabric to reconstruct the lives of the forgotten women of Appalachia, while combining elements of contemporary issues facing the region that have been constants in her West Virginia upbringing. Miners, snake charmers, weavers, debutants, and shamans; all have a place for women as cornerstones in the whole of the culture. Click HERE for more information
