Carol Hamoy - ART CART Oral History

Hamoy, Carol; Teachers College. Research Center for Arts and Culture

Carol Hamoy discusses her experiences being a woman artist. Through her artwork, Hamoy gives voice to and creates an audience for victims of prejudice and generalizations. She talks about being a successful woman in a profession dominated by men who assumed she was there to wait on them rather than as one of their equals. When she retired and became a full-time artist, she realized the gender imbalance in artists represented in galleries, which continues in the present. She also talks about her relationship with her family throughout her life, and how they do not always understand her desire to make art instead of being around family all the time.
