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.
