The Coastal Arts League Museum and Gallery will present works of the Peninsula Chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art. The exhibition titled “Aftermath” will on view from September 2 to October 3, 2011 at the Gallery, 300 Main Street in Half Moon Bay. The reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 5-7 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 1-5 pm.
When the members of the Peninsula Women’s Caucus for Art chose “Aftermath,” it was with a common consensus that the appropriate title was chosen for the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. The theme “Aftermath” brought up many reactions from the artists; and it was decided that the work could be personal, political or interpreted by each individual’s perspective. The perspectives vary from dark, judgmental and personal to new life, hope, preserve and rebuild. The art created for the exhibit is emotionally moving and showcases the depth of talent of the Peninsula Women’s Caucus for Art.
