July 15 – October 15, 2006
Dorothy Jenkins and Emily S. Macey Galleries
Though the art world has become more open to artists of all backgrounds, those outside and too often inside the art world fail to acknowledge the art historically important contributions of women artists. This extraordinary exhibition of major works by 20 artists addresses this issue. The artists in this exhibition are innovators who have added distinct marks along the path of art through their paintings, prints, photographs, collages, sculptures, and mixed media installations. Artists represented in the exhibition are a virtual “Who’s Who” of important living artists: Jennifer Bartlett, Amalia Mesa Bains, Camille Billops, Elizabeth Catlett, Linda Freeman, Ann Hamilton, Grace Hartigan, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Elizabeth Murray, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Schapiro, Laurie Simmons, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Joan Snyder, Pat Steir, Gail Tremblay, Jackie Winsor and Flo Oy Wong.
This exhibition has been curated by Eleanor Flomenhaft and the tour has been organized by Smith Kramer Fine Art Services.
