Women with their Work is a series of all-women group art exhibitions, co-curated by Peter Prinz and Jessica Dallow, Ph.D. The first group exhibition, Women and their Work I: Affect + Action opened Friday, September 8 from 5:30 to 7pm. Artists address social issues ranging from institutionalized racism, water pollution, the atrocities of war, and the subjugation of female bodies (human and nonhuman). Birmingham artists in the exhibition are Catherine Cabaniss, Beverly Erdreich, Melanie Grinney, Celestia Morgan, and Miriam Omura. Miami artist Rosa Naday Garmendia’s work was also exhibited, as well as Frankfort, Kentucky artist L.A. Watson.
The exhibition will remain on display at Space One Eleven through December 29, 2017. Space One Eleven’s gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 5pm, and by appointment.
In 2018 there will be two additional women’s exhibitions in the series that will feature emerging artists and sculptors. Accompanying panel discussions will explore the attitudes toward feminist art among women of different generations and shifts from feminist issues of the 80s to broader societal issues of today.
