Nashville-born Vadis Turner is a mixed-media artist who explores the female experience, intergenerational wisdom, rites of passage, and gender roles through the lens of her family history in the southern United States. Turner creates lush abstract assemblage artworks embedded with narratives that assert the value of female experiences, informed by artist-organized intergenerational listening sessions. Turner received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Sculptors & Painters Award in 2016 and has exhibited across the US and abroad, including in the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn; National Gallery, Prague; Andy Warhol Museum, Philadelphia; Frist Art Museum, Nashville; Bass Art Museum, Miami; and others.

Generously supported by the CU President's Fund for the Humanities and the Bill Burgess Emerging Artists Fund.
