Reception Monday 12/11 4-7p.m.
Despite the fact that women earn half the MFA degrees in the country, only a quarter of the exhibitions in New York galleries feature women and only 5% of art on display in U.S. museums was made by women (Carol Pelletier, Breaking Ground). With Our Eyes Open reflects on the state of women’s voices in the Arts in 2017 by bringing together two institutions founded to provide preparation and platforms for women— The Cambridge School of Weston (originally, The Cambridge School for Girls) and The National Association of Women Artists, NAWA, (originally, the Women’s Art Club). With eyes on progressive principles, both institutions were created to provide women with opportunities for their voices to flourish in a cultural atmosphere of inequality.
With Our Eyes Open is juried and curated by Todd Bartel, Gallery Director at Thompson Gallery, the Cambridge School of Weston.

"Upward Trend" is a visual interpretation of global phenomena created predominantly by burning fossil fuels: sea level rise, ice mass loss, shifts in flower/plant blooming cycles, and extreme weather events.
A discussion and reading from The Last Daughter of Elizabeth Light will focus on how the research of my family history led to writing a fictional family saga. As the novel works backward from Lizzie Kurtz, a modern woman, to her family’s connection to Mary Wollstonecraft and the women’s rights movement of the late 1700s, it reveals the indelible impression left on each generation by the one before it. These eight women and one man are inexorably connected by more than just a bloodline.
