DESCRIPTION
Showcasing the work of 79 California Women Artists the Women's Caucus for Art in conjunction with SOMArts Cultural Center present an exhibition titled "CONTROL", curated by Karen Gutfreund.  The 94 works on display cover a broad range of media, including painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and video installation. Organized around the theme of control (or lack of it), the show explores the artists interpretation of all methods of control: internal, external, positive, negative, over life events and over technology, empowering or dehumanizing, politically correct - or not. The work was juried by members of Guerrilla Girls West, a group of women art activists in gorilla masks, who have been protesting the lack of inclusion for women artists in museum and gallery collections since 1987.

This collection of work addresses many issues, including statements on war, politics, ethnicity, gender identity and stereotypes, domestic violence, religion, money and the environment. "Regardless of the artist's media, their individual work speaks to the uniqueness and strength of their message on "Control" says Karen Gutfreund, curator.
