Shed/Afternow: Work by Linda Stoudt in the MAM Collection
When Stoudt's husband of 42 years died from cancer in 2012, part of her grieving process was to make art. While she worked, the word "shed" lodged in her mind"to shed tears, grief, and ultimately, a major part of her identity. A shed is also a shelter. Stoudt writes, "I found shelter from my loss in the art making process," and titled the resulting series of work Shed.
