Women Painting Women: In Earnest

August 4, 2017 Through October 1, 2017

BalkanJennifer_Queen_36x30_oil_2015Women Painting Women began as an online blog highlighting women artists working in the figurative tradition, started at a time when the founders, all figurative painters, felt there was little support for those working in that genre. Inspired by their discussions, but failing to find any single, comprehensive online resource cataloguing contemporary women artists painting the female figure, artists Alia El-Bermani, Diane Feissel and Sadie Valeri established the site in March of 2009; since then the site has featured the work of hundreds of women painters from around the world.

Women Painting Women: in Earnest is a traveling exhibition based on the original artists represented from the blog. It was organized by two of the blog founders, Alia El-Bermani and Diane Feissel. This is the sixth such themed show at the Customs House Museum. Thirty artists from across the country and abroad make up the roster.
