Creativity Q+A with Mary Beth Acosta

A Feral Housewife, an exhibition of collages by Leelanau County artist Mary Beth Acosta, take up residence in the Glen Arbor Arts Center Lobby Gallery January 6 – April 21. View it in the GAAC Main Gallery or on line.

Working under the creative nom de guerre “The Feral Housewife,” Acosta uses simple, familiar tools and a range of recycled, vintage papers to create collages about mid-century housewives, big-finned cars, and “labor-saving” appliances that were promoted as drudgery-busting machines that would revolutionize the modern home.

Please enjoy this conversation with Mary Beth, which was first published in January 2022 — a companion program for the Paper Work exhibition [January 14 – March 24, 2022].
