A sculpture by BFA alumna Ringo Lisko, “Detritivore,” was selected for inclusion in the first Feminist Biennial, hosted by the renowned Woman Made Gallery in Chicago and juried by arts professional Ashley Wynn. The exhibition is open now through November 5, 2022. Woman Made Gallery, established thirty years ago, has featured renowned artists such as Judy Chicago and Faith Ringgold. The gallery is a space for women and non-binary artists, including trans women and femme/feminine-identifying genderqueer artists. The gallery’s mission focuses on feminism and feminist art-making.

Lisko also has three works in the SECAC 2022 Juried Exhibition, in Baltimore, Maryland, juried by the artist and curator Jeffrey Kent. The works will be on display October 21-28, 2022, the week of the Southeastern College Art Conference’s annual meeting.

Ringo Lisko is pursuing an MFA in the Rinehart School of Sculpture at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in Baltimore. She designed and created the eight-foot bronze sculpture, Flourish, installed in 2021 in UA’s Woods Quad Sculpture Garden. Lisko’s design was the first selected in the McMahon-Pleiad Public Art Trail initiative, a collaborative public sculpture project between The University of Alabama, The University of Alabama at Birmingham and The University of Alabama in Huntsville, awarded by the Board of Trustees of The University of Alabama System.
