Created by artist Kat Hustedde, the library’s new exhibit features images of female saints burned (in a process called pyrography) into vintage wooden ironing boards. Many of these saints, Kat says, deal with women’s issues: fertility, marriage, domestic violence, pregnancy, penitence, and housework. “By conjuring their ‘likenesses,'” Kat says, “I am venerating them, but in a way far removed from the prayerfulness of when I was a practicing Catholic. I acknowledge their existence as women who faced great headship and conflict, more than as metaphysical beings that have an impact on their assigned advocacy.” Kat’s representations are at home on antique wooden ironing boards, symbols themselves of womanhood, domesticity, and labor. Watch for two upcoming events: an artist talk by Kat Hustedde on March 25 at 4:00 and a He-Man Ironing Contest, to be announced.
