From a Woman's Perspective
(Portland, ME) For the past five years, during the month of September, Richard Boyd Art Gallery has installed an annual exhibition of paintings and sculpture created by women artists to commemorate Women’s Equality Day as designated by a Joint Resolution of Congress on August 26, 1971. The exhibit demonstrates our ongoing support of women’s equality and our hope for equality for all mankind.
Creating visual art gives women another voice, a way to express their true feelings about daily life and the world around them. It’s a means of relaxation and a way to cope with issues of the day.
Drawn from the gallery’s inventory of original works, this multi-generational exhibition includes a selection of over 25 paintings, and 3 sculptures created by nine accomplished women artists’ Amy Bickford, Linda Caron, Patricia Chandler, Carrin Culotta, Jane Herbert, Jean Noon, Jen Pagnini, Felicity Sidwell, and Susan Tan. Although each artist has her own style, technique, and approach to creating art they are joined by a passion - expressing themselves through art.
The exhibition is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through September 29, 2020. For more information about the exhibit contact the gallery by phone at (207)-712-1097, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the gallery’s website at www.richardboydartgallery.com .
