As part of Alcoves 2020 Baxter will be showing her Breastplate series with several other sculptures. The Breastplate series are based on traditional breastplates used as armor throughout history. They have been altered to suit a lady and are based on Victorian ladies’ blouses. These pieces talk about protection for woman by taking the restricted quality of the Victorian era and turning that into power.

Opening is January 3rd 2020 5-7pm at The New Mexico Museum of Art

Debra is incredibly honored to be the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Award for Painters and Sculptors.

From the Joan Mitchell Foundations web site:
“The annual Painters & Sculptors Grants, first awarded in 1993, provide unrestricted funds of $25,000 each to a diverse group of 25 artists. Selected through a tiered process of nomination and jurying, these grants seek to recognize artists who are making exceptional work, who are deserving of greater acknowledgment on a national level, and who will benefit from the recognition and funding that the award provides.”
