For more than two decades, Redman has been an active force in gaining support and recognition for women in the arts. In 1992, she was a founding member of the Women's Caucus for the Arts San Diego Chapter and served as its first president. (right: Story Bones)

Redman, a San Diego-based artist, depicts the journey into old age with stark, earthy and moving portraits of herself and other aging women. Her work has been displayed throughout the United States and abroad. Her honors include a Ford Foundation Award.

Redman's March 3 presentation and March 4 presentation are part of a two-day national conference at USF, "Illuminations 2000: Dialogues on Women."
