Sneak Peek: Women Painting Women: (R)evolution

In September, Principle Gallery in Alexandria, Virginia, will be doing its part in celebrating the feminine muse and the feminine creative with the opening of Women Painting Women : (R)evolution.  This is one of six shows organized by the Women Painting Women community being held concurrently throughout the United States and Scotland.  Previously, Principle Gallery hosted the highly successful show The Expedition & Beyond, also organized by the Women Painting Women group, which featured paintings created during a week-long sojourn in South Carolina by 13 of the original WPW core members.

From the (R)evolution press release:
The goal of this show—as with the group's past shows—is to expand the collective sense of what a woman is and means in the realm of art. Each artist has been asked to invite one female artist to exhibit alongside them, thus multiplying the power and vision of the group twofold. Above all, though, the hope of the artists in this exhibit is to show variety, and to continue to build community and visibility for women artists.
"There is this notion of continuing on in building a community, but because of our association as a group we've all noticed how we've evolved in our careers," says Alia El-Bermani, one of the founding members of the Women Painting Women blog which inspired this movement and the ensuing exhibits. "It's about our evolution as well as starting a revolution to make women more visible."

The exhibit, which features work by more than two-dozen contemporary female representationalists, opens September 20th, and runs through October 18th.  On the opening day, there will be a reception from 6:30 - 9:30 PM.  For more information, visit the Principle Gallery website, or contact the gallery at 703.739.9326.

Principle Gallery is located at 203 King Street in Alexandria, Virginia.  It is open Sundays and Mondays from 12 - 5 PM ;   Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 AM - 6 PM ;  and Fridays and Saturdays 10 AM - 8 PM.




Digital and print catalogs of the exhibition are available from Matter Deep Publishing.  To see the catalog, and to order, please click here.

Beautiful artwork! Though there are several I appreciated more than the others, I thought the Grandmothers was an interesting one.
