Two-time graduate, Manny Tang ’07/’11 also known as the artist China Cat, is gaining major traction for her artistic abilities in painting and printmaking. Manny graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with minors in Art History and Human Development and also went on to graduate with her Master of Arts degree in Education. Her experience here along with the help of associate professor of art, Dave Menard, is what introduced Manny to her passion for printmaking.

Recently, she was highlighted in an article titled “State of the Artist: Who doesn’t like a little black leather?” by WNIJ (Northern Public Radio) where she was recognized for her unique style of art. Check out the article to learn more about Manny and how she became interested in feminist art that appeals to the “female gaze”, also known as art that represents the perspective or sensibility of the female viewer.
