Although the term “the fairer sex” is considered dated due to its emphasis on the physical appearance of women, Jessica Hagen presents, with a wink, an exhibition that showcases sculpture, paintings, jewelry, textiles, ceramics and photography by twenty-plus contemporary female artists working in the United States. “I have always wanted to have an all-women’s show, and given the events of the last year and a half, from the women’s march to the #metoo movement, it seemed like the time was definitely right to host this exhibition,” states gallery owner Jessica Hagen. Women artists represent one half of Jessica Hagen’s roster, a positive statistic in a field where men often outnumber women.
The featured artists are as follows: Laura Baring Gould, Diane Harrison, Mira Nakashima, Victoria Mele, Theresa Girard, Jane Blood-Good Abrams, Diana Bunting, Patricia Davis Ganek, Judy Chaves, Jill Madden, Nancy Grace Horton, Jolie Stahl, Anne Mimi Sammis, Melanie Preston, Didi Suydam, Judith Davis, Wylene Commander, Jeanne Tangney, Sabina Tichindeleanu, Karen Iglehart, Elizabeth Kahane, Stephanie Marzella, Chris Hayman, Jessica Pisano, and Susan Freda .
All are welcome to attend the opening reception on Sunday, July 22nd from 5:00- 7:30pm.
