Tomorrow at 4pm, I will be at the SOHO20 Gallery in Chelsea, NYC, ready to give a brief talk about my work (*insert nervous sigh here*). I am so grateful to my wonderful friend Carmen – who accompanied me up north and encouraged me to buy a dress for the occasion (insisted, actually). And a big thank you to Lisa – who is willing to drive us into the City on what is to be a scorcher of a summer day. Without you two at my side, I don’t know if I could do it 🙂
Below is a quote from the gallery’s press release, summing up the mission of the show. If you are in the area, the show runs from July 18-August 10. Hope you can stop on by!
“Nearly one hundred years after women won the right to vote, and fifty years after the second wave feminist
revolution began, women’s work is undervalued, women’s choices are invalidated, and women’s voices
are unheard. It is time for women to invest in each other-
to celebrate our accomplishments and affirm our potential.
In addition to creating a space to discuss the pervasive influence of sexism in all
spheres of American life, Women in Charge! seeks to honor women: our work, our role
models, and our lives. In this exhibition, artists of all genders, across generations, and working
in a variety of media use the language of art to explore the relationship between women and
leadership: a visual representation to women’s ever growing power.”
