Denise Beaudet 

When: Nov. 3-Jan. 31 2018
Female fierceness comes to the forest: As part of her ongoing “Roots to Resistance” project, the Easthampton, Mass., painter has mounted 12 large-scale portraits of women activists at the Gallery in the Woods in Brattleboro. Towering at eight feet tall, Beaudet’s subjects include indigenous Honduran environmental activist Berta Cáceres (who was assassinated in 2016) and Rebecca Gomperts, who began offering mobile abortion services by boat in 1999. Beaudet presents each activist as a saint, employing a folksy style that derives from both eastern and western religious art traditions. The message is clear: These women are to be revered, their deeds to be known.
