ONLINE – Artist Spotlight: Maureen Stewart

Maureen Stewart is an artist, designer and Air Force veteran who uses her work to foster collective compassion, solidarity and hope.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Stewart collaborated with community members who sent her stories and images representing their experiences of isolation. Her work will be on display in our Veterans Art Gallery from September 17, 2021 – April 30, 2022.

In this conversation with Virginia War Memorial Director Dr. Clay Mountcastle, Stewart will share how she uses her skills as a designer and creator to render vibrant illustrations of these intimate moments.

Join us for this program to discover how Maureen Stewart deftly incorporates warmth and escape into her works.
