A-Z An Historical Survey of Women Artists

On View Friday, October 9, 2015–Sunday, March 27, 2016

In response to the lack of representation and recognition of women in the arts, Coni Minneci created a series of paintings, 2003-2006, to honor the history of women. From A to Z, 26 paintings are a tribute to some of those women. Disparity has long been the unfair position of women in the arts and society. Whether at 78% of wages paid to men (71% in the largest museum directors in the US) or the appalling difference in the representation of men and women in galleries and museums. This reality defines the purpose of Coni Menneci’s Series, from Sofonisba Anguissola to Marguerite Thompson Zorach they range and if you are not aware of their names, now is the time you become familiar.  Each painting includes a short write up that explains their significance.
