Artist Olga Stamatiou’s collection titled, “Let Our Voices Emerge” will be viewable at the Beaufort County Library during the month of September. The collection of paintings predominantly feature colorful images of Muslim women dressed in Burkas.
The art exhibit coincides with the Beaufort County Library’s systemwide grant project titled “One County Reads One Country: Afghanistan.” The Federal Library Services and Technology grant is administered through the South Carolina State Library.
Olga Stamatiou began the “Let Our Voices Emerge” series in March 2011, after watching an International Women’s Day demonstration in Cairo turn ugly. Olga Stamatiou began painting in 1967 at the age of 21. She lived in Athens, Greece, and received her BFA and MFA in Painting from Boston University.
