Women Painting Women

Well, we have returned from our very exciting road trip to St. Louis & Charleston. We had a great time!
We started out in St. Louis visiting our great friends, Viveca and Graham Lane (you should check out their work! There is a link on our main page) We had such an amazing time with them.

Viveca modeled for me, so I will be painting her very soon! YAY!

After St. Louis, we drove to Charleston for the Women Painting Women show my work was in at Robert Lange Studios. It was awesome. The gallery was packed! We met so many talented artists and saw their beautiful works! If you have not seen the blog where the inspiration for the show came from, check it out. It is great! (My work happens to be featured there right now! Thanks ladies!)

We had many hours to talk about new painting ideas while we drove to the East Coast (and back), and we are eager to get to work!

"Women Painting Women" show At Robert Lange in Charleston

I am so excited about participating in this show!

Women Painting Women
Group Invitational at Robert Lange Studios
November 5 Opening

“This is our most ambitious show to date,” says gallery owner Megan Lange of the galleries upcoming “Women Painting Women” group invitational. Robert Lange Studios will be bringing together forty female painters from around the globe, with an opening reception on Friday, November 5 from 5:30-8:30PM at the 2 Queen Street location during the Charleston Fine Art Dealers’ Association’s (CFADA) Fine Art Weekend.

The female form is one of the most painted subject matters of all time. Works like Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, Whistler’s Mother, Mona Lisa, Girl with a Pearl Earring, and Madame X, are all considered among the most recognized paintings in history, and were all created by men.

The November exhibit at RLS, featuring a variety of paintings depicting the female form, displays a shift in notoriety towards contemporary women painters. Starting in 1707, this historic shift began in the United Sates when Henrietta Johnston began to work as a portrait artist in Charles Town (now Charleston), South Carolina, making her the first known professional woman artist in America.

“Few people outside of the art world can name female painters, with the exception of perhaps Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe, and even fewer can name a painting of a woman created by a woman,” says Lange. “However, there is a sensitivity to the female form that perhaps a woman can only truly understand.”

The artists chosen for this show are the ones that refuse to play it safe. Those who don't adhere to traditional painting standards and are creating truly unique works include:

Sharon Allicotti
Jennifer Balkan
Mia Bergeron
Candice Bohannon
Linda Tracey Brandon
Kerry Brooks
Ali Cavanaugh
Rachel Constantine
Jessica Dunegan
Alia El-Bermani
Diane Feissel
Sandra Flood
Katherine Fraser
June Glasson
Lisa Gloria
Haley Hasler
Abby Heller-Burnham
Karen Kaapcke
Anna Killian
Sharon Knettell
Stanka Kordic
Francien Krieg
Hilarie Lambert
Lacey Lewis
Amy Lind
Francesca Marzorati
Suellen McCrary
Jazz-minh Moore
Kirsten Moran
Karen Ann Myers
Jennifer Nehrbass
Joyce Polance
Gail Potocki
Jennifer Presant
Catherine Prescott
Lee Price
Cindy Procious
Stephanie Rew
Elisa Rossi
Shannon Runquist
Tiffany Sage
Lique Schoot
Sara Scribner
Karen Silvestro
Adrienne Stein
Terry Strickland
Katherine Stone
Stefani Tewes
Sanna Tomac
Alexandra Tyng
Sadie J Valeri

Each painter has created one or two original works for the show. Ali Cavanaugh's striking frescos show a woman with striped socks on her arms. Her face is hidden, presumably because of her shyness. Mia Bergeron provides impressionist portraits that pack a lot of emotion into their small frames.

Another example, Swedish painter Sanna Tomac’s “Invisible Bond” is a 35" x 25" work in oil and depicts a woman wearing a shall with a swan and a tiny fox tucked within it’s safety. This is symbolic of a woman’s nurturing nature.

The group show is part of the CFADA Fine Art weekend, with events including exhibits on Friday, plein air demonstrations in Washington Park during the day on Saturday with the Charleston Art Auction to follow Saturday night. Many of the artists will be painting in the park for charity on Saturday.

CFADA is a non-profit organization and the Fine Art Weekend is designed to raise money for art programs for local schools. For eleven years the organization has been donating money and this year CFADA’s goal is to hit $200,000 in cumulative donations.
