Abigail Stevens - Biography
 
“The Year in 20/20: Keeping Perspective”
    “Borrowing from the title of a long–running TV show, this is an installation examining the phases that many of us have gone through in this one year alone. From parenting in a pandemic to witnessing a time in history torn apart by political debate and protests, to the literal movement from one phase of societal re-opening to another, we progress through the timeline of the past year collectively, yet in a private manner. Here is my rather personal time capsule of thoughts and daily routines during the quarantine period of about three months. In that time, I was working from home remotely with a two year-old. I was not aware of the many new roles I was about to take on in addition to being a mother and wife. At a time that was utterly chaotic in nature and unprecedented, I found myself not only pivoting professionally but also personally.
“The confinement of my Victorian-era house in downtown Savannah had me seeking out new ways to creatively stage my home - as if trying to stretch into every extra inch of space for me, my spouse, our toddler, two dogs, and two goldfish. In the shelter of our home, I found myself surrounded by vintage décor and thinking about the last pandemic and how very similar yet different our experience was to those who lived here in 1918 - in this very house and through the decades thereafter as survivors. I also wanted to incorporate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. Through the use of everyday items, I seek to merge the past and present, to explore the complexity of being a parent and an active global citizen in a not yet post pandemic world - an act that almost seems rebellious in a way.”
Abigail Stevens holds a B.A. in Art History from Agnes Scott College and an M.A. in Art History from Savannah College of Art and Design. She currently works at the Jewish Educational Alliance and Savannah Jewish Federation. She lives in Savannah, GA with her husband, toddler, two dogs and two goldfish.
     Verity Stevens is age 2 and currently attends preschool at JEA. She likes to help her mommy make art and is excited to collaborate on this project. She also graciously donated some of her crayons, stencils, and attire for art’s sake.

Abigail Stevens’ artwork will be available for viewing from
October 1 through October 30, 2020, at the JEA (5111 Abercorn Street).
