“Gender bias still exists in the fine art world. Female artists are disproportionately underrepresented in museum collections, despite receiving critical recognition and focused scholarship. Juried shows like this help to bring awareness about the work of living female artists to help level the playing field. As The Rockwell Museum moves towards expanding our collection in this dedicated field, our featured exhibitions give us the opportunity to present the work of contemporary female artists.”
-Kirsty Buchanan, Curator of Collections
