Panel Discussion: Women in Art
May 5, 2023
2 PM - 4PM

Free Event

Join EPMA for a moderated panel discussion with questions from the community.

As the exhibition, There Is a Woman in Every Color: Black Women in Art, explores women in art, EPMA offers our community a way to see women in art besides being an artist or subject. This panel will provide an opportunity to experience firsthand testimonials from successful women in the arts in a casual setting. Each presenter will share their experiences and offer advice to those considering pursuing a career in the arts.

Panel participants include:

  • Sereka Barlow, El Paso Museum of Art Foundation Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer of YWCA El Paso del Norte Region
  • Dr. Elvira Carrizal-Dukes (E.C.-Dukes), one of the creative forces behind DUKEScomics, filmmaker, writer, director, and producer
  • Jessica Fuentes, News Editor for Glasstire and Executive Director of Kinfolk House
  • Sheetal Prajapati, Principal & Founder of Lohar Projects

The panel will be moderated by EPMA’s Assistant Curator, Claudia S. Preza.

Submit your questions to our panelists via email to with the subject Women in Art.

This event is part of the accompanying programming for the exhibition, There Is a Woman in Every Color: Black Women in Art organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.

Support for this program is provided by Art Bridges.
