The second Artist Studio Visit of the 2024 season was not only informative, inspiring, and educational; it was so much fun! The morning began with a beautiful studio tour in Mariposa at the home of artist, Katrina Lasko, where she presented to an intimate group of 15 members the intricate beauty and multi-dimensionality of her artwork. Katrina’s work embodies more than one genre, and at times showcases the provocative and the aesthetic beauty of the world. It was inspiring to listen to her speak of her series, “I Wish I Had a River,” which expresses the story of grief and loss, a universal exp ..read more

The medium used to be the message for the Women to Watch series of exhibitions sponsored by the National Museum of Women in the Arts. I was fortunate to see the exhibition Paper Routes when it opened in March 2020 at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, days before public spaces shut down with the arrival of Covid-19 and the exhibition shifted to online presence only. New Worlds: Women to Watch 2024 is NEW, aptly so, following the meltdown of historic narratives and future plans we all experienced riding out the pandemic. It takes a theme to encapsulate the immensity of the time we ar ..read more

You know you’re doing something right when news of it travels across the ocean. The November 20, 2023 Art & Design section of The Guardian featured an in-depth article about women, art, and the NMWA. Of course, National’s two-year, $63 million renovation drew attention, but journalist Katy Hessel leads with more important numbers: In 2019, a study published in the journal Plos One found that in the collections of 18 major US museums, 87% of artworks were by men and 85% by white artists. In 2022, the Burns Halperin report found that in the acquisitions made at 31 prominent US museums betwee ..read more

2023 was the first year the NMC organized a volunteer four-person subcommittee tasked with creating an application process for studio visits. Between July and September 2023, interested artists completed a questionnaire, shared photos of their studio, put together a presentation plan for a studio visit, and wrote about their experience presenting their work.  When the submission window closed there were 36 applicants – far more than could be scheduled for 2024!  The studio visit subcommittee then narrowed the field with an eye to what would make a reward ..read more

Guerrilla Girls, Do Women Have to Be Naked 2005; Lithographic poster, 12 x 14 in. © Guerrilla Girls, Courtesy www.guerrillagirls.com Well that's eye-catching isn't it??? And it hits home too. There is a significant gender bias in the art world, not the least of which is the predominance of male artists painting women in the nude, and often surrounding those women by fully clothed men. Take for example these two famous paintings: Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe (French); The Luncheon on the Grass) – originally titled Le Bain (The Bath) – by Édouard Manet, 1863 Henri Gervex (1852–1929), "Before the O ..read more
