A Women's Caucus for Art Exhibition Project
January 31 – February 25, 2017 Ceres Gallery

WAGE ON! Women, Art, and Money is the featured national exhibition of the 2017 WCA national conference in New York City.It offers a timely opportunity to address the impact of a changing political and economic landscape through the multi-generational lens of the twenty artists in the exhibition.

As juror Helga Christoffersen remarked:

“I looked to works that took on issues of woman’s work, rights, and identity today, in ways that speak to fundamental underlying issues in our society that affect us all. . . . This exhibition is an important initiative and an example of a way to bring together a broad range of voices, opinions, and practices under a united and urgent cause.”

The exhibition continues themes set by the Minnesota WCA chapter in their expansive 2016 “The Women and Money Project” and collaboration with Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota. A full-color catalog will extend the historical and geographical reach of the exhibition and be available in February 2017. The public is invited to the Artists Reception on Thursday, February 16 from 6-8 pm at Ceres Gallery..

Participating Artists: Torey Akers, Judy Ballance, Veronica Ceci, Pauline Chernichaw, Dorit Jordan Dotan, Palmer Earl, Christine Giancola, Julia Gutman, J.J.

IMPACT!

This exhibition honors the achievements and legacy of all 194 women in the visual arts who received WCA Lifetime Achievement awards between 1979 and 2016, as documented in the honor catalogs. The awardees are introduced here in order of their award year.
 
The 2016 WCA Conference in Washington, DC culminated with a rousing reception at our exhibition Impact! on the entire second floor of the American University Museum gallery. The legacy of WCA was understood and appreciated by those who saw the examples of powerful work by over thirty artists. Scrolling slides recognizing all 194 women honored since the first awards were presented at the White House in 1979 represented the full range and significance of the honor awards.

The exhibition was co-organized by former WCA board members Jaimianne Amicucci and Barbara Wolanin with the support of the WCA board, the museum, and the lenders.

Views from the Edge:
Women, Gender and Politics


Curatorial award for Women’s History Month at the Sarah Doyle Gallery at Brown University in Providence, RI. 

Karen Gutfreund chose 24 women artists for this exhibition “Views from the Edge: Women, Gender and Politics”. The exhibition runs from March 2 to 28, 2015.

Exhibition catalog: http://issuu.com/karengutfreund/docs/views_from_the_edge_women_gender_an? utm_source=conversion_success& utm_campaign=Transactional& utm_medium=email

This feminist exhibition features the art of 24 women artists raising their voices to advocate for gender equality, women’s rights, and social justice. Works in all media range from the poetic to the psychological, from the personal to the political, and from representational to the abstract. These expressions provoke, dramatize, and challenge assumptions about women’s lives in today’s global society. How is women’s identity defined, controlled, and supported when it comes to politics, reproductive rights, and self-expression? Why is violence against women so common? Why are women’s lives so difficult even now in the 21st. century? This show asks the viewer to look critically at the boundaries and barriers to women’s rights, to celebrate the wonderful differences that women make in both personal and public domains, and to join the fight to achieve the equality that women deserve.  

Artists in the Gallery:  Sherri Cornett, Anahi DeCanio, Cat Del Buono, Sally Edelstein, Linda Friedman Schmidt, Patricia Izzo, Marky Kauffmann, Sandra Klein, Beth Lakamp, Monica Lundy, Sarah Maple, Janice Nesser, Guerrilla Girls On Tour!, Priscilla Otani, Mervi Pakaste, Min Kim Park, Jane Peterman, Roxanne Phillips, Nora Raggio, Sinan Revell, Amanda Sawyer, Gail Smuda, Rebecca Stern, and Jennifer Weigel.

National Juried Exhibition presented by the Women’s Caucus for Art at the National Steinbeck Center, Salinas California from September 7 2012 to January 6, 2013 with Dr. Joyce Aiken http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joyce_Aiken, Dr. Ruth Weisberg www.cla.purdue.edu/waaw/ressler/artists/weisbergstat.html, and Patricia Rodriguez www.patriciarodriguezarts.com/texts/cv/text/cv_s2005.htm as jurors. We asked for artwork that examines and explores the social, political and economic issues related to women’s activism. Historically, women have played a central role in the struggle for Civil Rights, yet their voices and experiences are generally ignored. We proposed an exhibition as a means of visually interpreting the struggle for women’s rights. By promoting and striving for protection and actualization of women’s rights, we are paving a path for a stronger and fuller civil and personal life, empowering ourselves and those who follow us. Our jurors chose 94 artists with 108 works to be exhibited at the museum.

Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze

“Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze” at SOMArts Cultural Center, San Francisco from November 4 to November 30, 2011 with Tanya Augsburg, Associate Professor SFSU as juror.
 
National Juried Exhibition presented at SOMArts Cultural Center, San Francisco from November 4 to November 30, 2011. Priscilla Otani and I received the SOMArts Commons Curatorial Residency. This exhibition re-envisions gender, society and the politics of exposure. With a gallery filled with men stripped naked, this body of work exposes women’s cheeky, provocative and sometimes shocking commentaries on the opposite sex. The exhibition’s contemporary scope encompasses all the ways that women view Man-as-Object, reversing the traditional view of male artists objectifying women. Its diverse perspectives on masculinity come from straight, transsexual, transgender, lesbian and multi-cultural artists through a spectrum of media, from paintings to sculpture, installations to performance, video to social media. Tanya Augsburg, Associate Professor SFSU chose 108 works by 105 artists in the gallery and an additional 89 artists in this catalog with 12 invited featured artists and their work.

Hidden Cities
 
“Hidden Cities”
at the New Century Artists Gallery in New York City from February 1 to February 12, 2011
Juror: Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, New Museum of Contemporary Art
Director: Karen Gutfreund
 
National Juried Exhibition presented by the Women’s Caucus for Art at the New Century Artists Gallery in New York City from February 1 to February 12, 2011 with Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, New Museum of Contemporary Art as juror. Artists were invited to explore their idea of their Hidden City, real or imagined, in an array of media, with the theme broadly interpreted from an activist, political or personal context. No matter our place in society, we all have our Hidden City, a place of refuge from gender, race, class and sexual exclusions, a place that shapes the feminist viewpoint. Some cities, like wrapped boxes, conceal unexpected gifts, others are riddles and lyrical abstractions. These are performative spaces where we may imagine retribution for injustices, righting wrongs or conversely, delving into the dark side. Lisa Philips chose 30 works for the gallery and an additional 18 for the catalog.

Control
 
“Control”
A juried exhibition of California women artists by the Guerilla Girls West shown at SOMArts Cultural Center August 2009. Director: Karen Gutfreund

 
A juried exhibition of California women artists by the Guerilla Girls West shown at SOMArts Cultural Center August 2009. This exhibition comprised the work of 79 California women artists on the theme of Control. We endeavored to create a pertinent exhibition for women artists with a theme that would stimulate the artists and viewers into a meaningful dialog. The work in this exhibition reflects a myriad of interpretations on the aspects of control (in control, out of control, politically correct or not) and it’s significance to the artist.
