Women Painting Women

Friday, January 10

Artist Reception, 5:00pm-8:00pm

Exhibition: Jan. 10 - Feb. 7, 2020

Women are stepping forward as we acknowledge each other and ourselves. In the last few years, many more women are running for political offices, speaking out about job conditions, asking for equal job opportunities with equal pay and telling their stories about abuse, with the hope it will abate.  It has been a fitful journey, one that started over 100 years ago when women fought for the vote.  Now, after the feminist movement in the 60’s and 70’s and periodic resurgence, many women choose to support each other’s potential and talents as we hone our own.  We are after all half the human inhabitants on the planet and can contribute to its healing.

This exhibition offers up the artistic ability of four dedicated women artists but more importantly, their work summons the female figure in various moods as she moves through moments in time. She is depicted in a variety of media, color and light as a singular woman but as all women.  Underneath each piece are aspects of femininity and the experience of being a woman in today’s world, whether overlooked or fully seen.  The eyes, a gesture, the hand, the tilt of her head all convey something about being female and especially so because these are women painted by women.
