Las Laguna Gallery

Women in Art – A Group Exhibition
March 7 to March 29, 2019
Artist Reception: Thursday March 7 from 5:30pm to 9:30pm

Please join us Thursday March 7, from 5:30pm to 9:30pm for the artist reception which will include art, live music and more.

Since ancient times, women artists have been creating alongside their male counterparts. During the last ten years we have seen an the past decade has seen a huge increase in its number of galleries and non-profit spaces popping up across the state; yet the bulk of these locations continue to promote the work of male artists, begging the inquiry of how gender equality has figured in this equation. While we are heading at such a fast rate, why are women artists being left behind?

The continued unevenness of gender representation within the arts is a topic; which up until now, was habitually ignored. The lack of concrete necessity compares inauspiciously with the time during the 1970s, when a large quantity of art movements in Europe and North America and critiqued patriarchal command and investigated the social and political impact of identity, sexual difference and gender.

During this time, statistical data that was gathered by activists in Los Angeles revealed that over a period of ten years, there was only a single; one woman show. All other single person shows were for male artists.

Las Laguna Gallery received hundreds of submissions and chose a wide variety of mediums and styles to show a snap-shot of incredible, groundbreaking, and incredibly crafted works.

Artists include: Lynne Adamson-Adrian, Tricia Alexander, Chloe Allred, Kiley Ames, Mary Ancilla-Martinez, Marisa Andropolis, Eleonora Balducchi, Lynn Berkeley, Claire Bishara, Ginger Bowen, Heidi Brueckner, Cherie Carter, Echo Chernik, Brooke Connor, Elizabeth Covington, Monica Daoud, Ginny English, Jennifer Esneault, Katherine Filice, Dellis Frank, Ronit Galazan, Olga Grun, Stacy Honda, Brooke Hunter, Nicole Jeffords, Evin Leek, Laurie Lisonbee, Melissa Milton, Neon Mushroomz, Tricia O’Connell, Robin Oneyung K, Maryam Rouhi, Jeannette Scollard.

Las Laguna Gallery is opened every day but Wednesday from 11am to 5pm and by appointment.
