On a personal note, participating this woman artist exhibition at Whitney Modern in Los Gatos was one of the most impacting and honoring experiences of my artistic career. Not only was I humbled to be one of only 36 artists selected to exhibit out of over 600 applicants nationwide, the talent and powerful messages behind the artwork was exceptional! I was among great company at the opening reception, meeting art professors and artists with notable reputations from all over the country who traveled to attend at the opening. We each got to briefly speak about our artwork (see video below).
Another exciting part of the experience was getting to work with the hardworking and talented curators Suzanne and Karen. They personally invited me to feature two of my figure paintings BURNING WOMAN & MILLENNIAL WOMAN as the featured gallery window front pieces to draw in clients from the high end downtown location in Los Gatos. Thank you to Whitney Modern and all of the talented woman artists who participated! Exhibition ends September 9th, 2018. Don't miss it!
Whitney Modern, in collaboration with Gutfreund Cornett Art, presents Rise: Empower, Change, Action! This open juried exhibition features selected works by thirty-six artists from locations around the country. RISE: Empower, Change and Action! brings artists into dialogue and brings forth what is important to self, community, our nation and the world at large through art that reflects on, addresses and seeks solutions for a more positive, empowering future, particularly for self-identified women and girls as well as their families. It is underpinned by the feminist principle that believes in political, economic and social equality for all. RISE emphasizes the commonalities of our human experience.
Join the conversation and see paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage and installations that speak for equality, independence and human rights while offering insight, healing and transformation.
