The Personal Is Political

 Telling Stories

Telling Stories

Carol Hanisch’s 1969 essay, The Personal is Political, crystallized the slogan and the concept for American society. A critique of what came to be called “consciousness raising groups,” Hanisch’s essay title was already a phrase used by activist feminists in the 1960s as they formed discussion groups to come to terms with discrimination in their daily lives.

Today the slogan, “The Personal is Political,” gains new power as we examine its meaning in the spotlight of the #MeToo movement.

This group exhibition by the National Association of Women Artist MA was curated by Carolyn Wirth, Hess Gallery Director.

The twenty-five works of art interpret the essay and women’s voices in today’s political climate.

The Hess Gallery is located on the campus of Pine Manor College, Chesnut Hill, MA

With Our Eyes Open

 The Last Mud Season - Acrylic with Pastel 24" x 21"

The Last Mud Season - Acrylic with Pastel 24" x 21"

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.
