WOMEN'S ART NOW

WOMEN'S ART NOW
an exhibition benefiting
Women's Voices Now

January 19 - February 18, 2013

Reception for the artists: Saturday, January 19, 4-7 PM
Installation photo opportunity 3:30 PM

Keynote Speaker, Judy L. Larson 5:00 p.m.
Former Director, National Museum for Women in the Arts
Director, Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, California

WOMEN'€™S ART NOW shines a vivid light on what's long been missing from the socio-cultural and socio-political equations at work in much of the world today: that missing factor being equal input from women. Thus all the works in this exhibition, though not necessarily about women, are by women.

The only other criteria for the selection of artworks is that they be masterfully executed, authentic expressions of the artists identities and consequent points of view. The field from which the artists were selected was defined in an equally simple manner - the artists have either crossed paths with the gallery and/or the gallery has collected their work.

Having cast this modest curatorial net absent of an aesthetic agenda other than artistry and authenticity, this show nevertheless exhibits a broad cross-section from the canons of modernism, post-modernism, feminism and post-feminism. Styles range from literal to abstract, geometric to expressionist; media range from traditional painting, graphics and sculpture to conceptual and other "avant-garde" forms.

WOMEN'S ART NOW will benefit Women'€™s Voices Now, a not-for-profit organization concerned with advancing women's rights to free expression in Muslim societies. The Women's Voices Now website hosts the largest existing collection of films by women and about women living in Muslim societies: 98 films from 40 countries. The website also supports an interactive online community of contributors from a wide range of national, ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds. All gallery proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Women'€™s Voices Now.

There is a two-hour validated parking lot in front and back of the gallery and also note that street parking will be fairly easy closer to 4 pm.

    This was an excellent event, a classy gallery, with an informative talk about the historical exclusion of women and their work in the art world and how this under representation continues today. It was also a fundraiser to support women in the Muslim world who seek to express themselves in the arts. This was a terrific evening.
