Rules Were Made to be Broken 
 
Women's Caucus Remembers Those Who Went Before
 
"Women Who Broke the Rules,"  an exhibit presented by the Peninsula Chapter of Women's Caucus for Art will be open to the public at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica from February 22 through March 30. A reception with the artists will be held on February 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the East Wing Gallery.
The theme was chosen to coincide with Women's History Month. This show is about women who have at some time stepped outside the line.  That could be by just saying "no" sometime in their personal or artistic life.  Or it could be a woman who decides to follow a difficult or unpopular path in order to achieve what is most important to her.
  
Yvonne Newhouse's painting is about her grandmother's contribution to the soldiers of WWI and WWII. Nancee McDonell's piece was inspired by Judy Chicago's early struggle to be recognized for her art. 
Bonnie J. Smith, textile artist, says in regard to her inspiration, Wilhelmina Cole Holladay, "Researching this honorable woman, I realized she was living my motto of 'swimming upstream and loving it. I am proud to swim in her wake.'"
