Talk Tuesday: Women's Work: Art & Activism in the 21st Century with Pen + Brush

Summer Series
Pen + Brush would like to present on exhibition: Women’s Work: Art & Activism in the 21st Century. Women’s Work presents five global contemporary artists-activists who continue to expand the definition of women’s work and expose its complexity, nuance, and ever-evolving nature. The exhibition covers a variety of media including photography, film, paintings, fiber art, and work on paper. Pen + Brush will also have staff on hand who can speak to the audience of particular interests in arts and cultures.

Pen + Brush is a 125-year-old publicly supported not-for-profit fighting for gender equity in the arts. P+B provides a platform to showcase the work of female artists and writers to a broader audience with the ultimate goal of effecting real change within the marketplace. We encourage and mentor emerging professionals and aim to expose the stereotypes and misconceptions that perpetuate gender-based exclusion, lack of recognition and the devaluation of skill that is still experienced by women in the arts. All art work is for sale, 75% of all sales go directly to the artist and 25% comes back in to feed the organization’s work.
