A Contemporary Art Project by Women
Reflecting upon 100 Years of Time and Progress for Women
Honouring Women Through Art as an
Act of Remembrance
After obtaining a significant historic collection of American and Canadian newspapers, two female artists, Liz Rae Dalton and Kathy Piercy have become immersed in the published photographic record of the 1920’s. Looking at the images through a female lens stimulated a strong desire for this duo to develop a visual art project with a contemporary female reaction to the past 100 years. To begin, Dalton and Piercy are drawing and painting 100 women from the 1920's who witnessed the suffragette era, and the women who were directly involved in the advancement of women at that time. Now, the artists are inviting contemporary women to join in, and submit stories about noteworthy women in their own lives, also as an act of remembrance and female empowerment.
Your submitted words will inspire art created by women for exhibition.
Exhibition dates: May 23-July 4, 2020 Modern Fuel Gallery, Kingston, Ontario, Canada
November-December 2020, Pop Up TBA
To be involved, submit your story about a woman of the past, and any thoughts about female progress since 1920. Your words matter, and they can be expressed in any way you choose. Send a photo if you wish.
Words of women will later become the platform for art made by women.
We appreciate your involvement in this timely project.
