Factor XX is on view at the Art Museum of Los Gatos through January 21, 2011.  This multimedia exhibit showcases and celebrates a collaboration of eleven award-winning women artists: Mari Andrews, Sharon Chinen, Nancy White, Emily Clawson, Lorene Anderson, Jenny E. Balisle, Mel Prest, Lea Feinstein, Amy Trachtenberg, Klari Reis, and Carol Ladewig.  The cost is free to the public.

A lecture on “Factor XX: Women Artists Talking Art” will be held on January 13, 2011.  Moderated by Cathy Kimball, Executive Director at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, and in collaboration with the Art Docents of Los Gatos, this lecture will feature a discussion panel of the Factor XX artists.  Held at the Media Center at Fisher Middle School in Los Gatos, a reception with the artists will begin at 6 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for members of the Museums of Los Gatos, $15 for non-members.

Artist Jenny E. Balisle formed the Factor XX group, based on the artists’ similar aesthetic values and expressive styles.  Balisle states: “I wanted to bring attention to nonfigurative female artists who share the same work ethic, commitment to the arts, and consistent, high-quality output.”  This exhibit is an extraordinary opportunity to share a dynamic and accomplished collaboration.

The Art Museum is located at 4 Tait Avenue at W Main Street in Los Gatos and open Wednesday through Sunday, 12 – 4 pm.  Please contact the Art Museum at (408) 395-7386.  For further information on Factor XX visit the website at and blog at
