A select group of women at the Stutz Art Center have a statement to make in sculpture, oil paint, metal and other art media.
Even though they may be older, that doesn’t mean their creative fire has burned out.
The nine women have come together for “Women of a Certain Age: On Fire” to celebrate the contributions of female artists older than 50. The exhibition will feature a variety of media, including metal, paint on canvas and woodcut prints on paper, that examine the artists’ self-image and ask viewers to think about the way they look at people around them.
“Often women our age are ignored or passed over, and this group of women wanted to express the difficulties of women in finding a voice, being heard, coming to grips with aging and beauty, and finally voicing the passions that come with a lifetime of experience,” coordinator Leigh Dunnington-Jones said.
