2020 Artemis launch
September 4, 2020

Here is a sneak preview of the cover by the acclaimed artist, Dorothy Gillespie. Dorothy graced our very first cover back in 1977 when we created the journal as a result of writing workshops for abused women. Dorothy was an avid supporter of public art and a feminist who chartered her way through the art world in New York City. Our 1977 cover created a stir and became the first art mural in downtown Roanoke, Va. A Roanoke native, Dorothy Gillespie (1920–2012) would have turned 100 this June. She remains the most nationally recognized artist who was born and raised in the Roanoke Valley and taught at Radford University in the nearby New River Valley. Artemis Journal is pleased to partner with the Taubman Museum of Art by celebrating Dorothy Gillespie.
