An exhibit by Lowell-based women artists who use the female image in their work. The show explores women as both subjects and creators of culture.
Artists include: Angela Alés, Mary Hart, Sally Twickler Johnston, Ilene Richard, Laurie Simko, Janet Wolahan, and Diana Zipeto. Collectively, they have exhibited in hundreds of galleries and exhibits across New England, the United States, and South America.
For centuries, women have been the subjects of countless works of art. For centuries, women have also been the creators of art, but for much of that time worked without the opportunities to become recognized masters of their crafts and definers of culture.
This exhibit features female as both subject and creator of art. The show’s images are created by Lowell-based professional artists who use the female image in their work. Their work represents an intense engagement with technique, materials and media. They show the realities of women’s inner lives and outer circumstances. They reveal women as humans who are navigating landscapes with both obstacles and discoveries.
By creating art, women exercise their right to author the culture and surroundings they are a part of. By representing themselves, women can define what they are, what they can do and who they wish to be.
