DESCRIPTION

WOMANHOOD/UNRESTRICTED

      Danielle Mailer, Samantha French, Emilie Lemakis, Rachel Pontious, Gail Stoicheff, and Jane Zweibel make art without restriction.
      “Anything,” Virginia Woolf wrote in A Room of One’s Own, “may happen when womanhood has ceased to be a protected occupation.” In Woolf’s sense, the word protected means “restricted.”       
      The six artists in WOMANHOOD/UNRESTRICTED create whatever they want, about whatever they want, and in whatever style, shape, or size they choose.
      They make tiny paintings and huge paintings that meander over the wall. They take photographs. They encase work under layers of wax.  They produce etchings, sculpture, and collages. The six women  use oil, chalk, steel, beer bottle tops, burlap, aluminum, neon, plywood, doppelgangers, pencils, and pantyhose.
      From this broad range of materials the women create memorable portraits, underwater scenes, figurative studies, abstracts, social satires, and knowing self-portraits.
      Many pieces are profound reflections of common truths and experiences, yet each woman’s work is original and stylistically her own. It is art created without limitations. It is personal and universal, one of a kind and memorable.
