About Abstraction: Bay Area Women Painters
Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts

September 24 - December 8

Political conversations have turned a renewed spotlight on women and their power and influence on every corner of society, including the arts. In the spirit of discovery, this show celebrates 16 Bay Area women artists, emerging and established, who have worked in abstraction for years. This show provides a platform for their work that features precise, powerful lines, as well as gestural patterns. These paintings suggest a kinship with the Abstract Expressionist movement of 1940s SoHo and San Francisco.  

Participating Artists Include:

Lorene Anderson, Eva Bovenzi, Donna Brookman, Heather Day, Amy Ellingson, Linda Geary, Rebekah Goldstein, Danielle Lawrence, Naomie Kremer, Michelle Mansour, Alicia McCarthy, Mel Prest, Cornelia Schulz, Ema Sintamarian, Michele Theberge, Canan Tolon.
