Upcoming Exhibition Women Painting Women

Women Painting Women (contains nudes)

Women Painting Women is an international movement that explores how contemporary women painters are handling women as subjects. The goal is to “promote the visibility of contemporary female artists portraying female subjects in the figurative traditions and showcase the quality, variety and breadth of women making figurative art in the 21st century”. 

The movement began as a Women Painting Women Blog in 2009 showcasing treatments of the female form as painted by female artists.  It has since expanded to include exhibitions in the UK and the US and now throughout the world.  We are delighted to bring this international movement to Calgary to encourage and inspire all figurative artists especially women.
