Group - Women's Work
LOCATION: Rollin Art Centre
Come to our group exhibit to see women's artwork, comprising of the work of Colleen Clancy, Jillian Mayne, Ann McIvor, and Sue Thomas. Our artists will be hosting a meet & greet on Saturday, June 25th, 1 pm - 3 pm.
This show includes the recent work by 4 Alberni Valley artists. The diversity of the work reflects each woman’s unique creative process and artistic expression.
Ann, Colleen, Jill & Sue initially met during weekly Life Drawing sessions at Port Alberni’s, DRAW Gallery. A mutual appreciation for a regular drawing practice and participating in several DRAW Gallery exhibits led to a strong
connection. In addition, the four shared an on-going involvement with Alberni Art Rave. Over the years while working on several creative community outreach projects with Art Rave, a friendship evolved.
The Women’s Work 2022 show illustrates what happens when 4 creative women come together in their shared joy of art making. It’s a collaboration that both fuels and elevates the work.
Historically women have often been the subject or object of art and were rarely given a place at the table, as artists, in their own right.
The choice of 'Women’s Work ’in the title of the show, playfully challenges the attitudes that still persist when it comes to how this expression has been used to define the work of women.
What does the expression, ‘Women’s Work’ conjure up for you?
The Artists' hope is to open up the conversation...
