I’m really pleased to have my portrait of Hiroko Hagiwara from my Women of Japan project in the “Portals” on-line exhibition.
Portals can be openings into new realities, liminal gateways to otherworldly realms, or doorways for the world of matter to commune with spirit. A portal might signify personal growth, self-actualization, or transcendence. This exhibition features artwork from 92 members of Northern California’s Women’s Caucus for Art that tells a story, invites the viewer into other realms, evokes transcendence, or inspires a good laugh. It was juried by Karen Gutfreund, a prominent feminist critic, artist and curator.
Arc Gallery & Studios is hosting the in-person portion of Portals, a juried, NCWCA Member exhibition. The in-person exhibition features 21 artworks that represent the collection as a whole. All 92 artworks will be exhibited in the Portals Online Gallery and in the Portals exhibition catalog.
The opening Reception is Saturday, 06/17/23, 7-9pm, at the Arc Gallery, 1246 Folsom Street, San Francisco. The gallery is open 1-6PM on Wednesdays & Thursdays and 12-3PM on Saturdays. Viewing by appointment is also available.
I’m also in an online artist’s conversation about the exhibition on Thurs, 08/03/22, from 7-8pm. It features artists Sandra Yagi, Carol Newborg, Linah Sofi, Cecile J Picard, Lorraine Bonner, Sandra Wolfson, Miriam Fabbri, Janna Waldinger, Suzanne Perkins, Nilou Farzam, Salma Arastu and me. Join the zoom talk at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83505103913?pwd=OGR0dVZUU1VLTmtEblNSTGQ0a2xzUT09. I’ll also post about the talk when it happens.
It’s a special show to be in. I’ll post catalogue information when I have it.
