Weaving Together is an exhibition in honor of Bee Colman, Emeritus Faculty from the CSUN Department of Art (1971-2006), who passed in July 2021.  The main room of the exhibition includes a survey of Bee's work from her MFA thesis through work completed just prior to her passing. The South back room features the work of several of Bee's former students, including Penny Collins, Kiki Garwood, Susan Karhroody, Linda Kaun, Smadar Knobler, Julie Kornblum, Chetna Mehta, Karen Schifman, Marsha Shaw, Kristina Staley, Joe Suzuki, Earllene Weiss, and Hiroko Yoshimoto. The North back room holds remnants of a private ritual, in honor of Bee, performed by the feminist group known as Hearth Circle. The members involved were: Leslie Brockian, Valerie Dale Fleming, Nancy Grant, Rosanna Hill, Linda Kaun, Sally Roberts, Nili Shamrat, Monika Wegner, and Earllene Weiss. (Note that some of these women were also Bee's students.)
