As She Sees It

About the exhibition:

Women artists take center stage at Modern Arts Midtown
-by Michael J. Krainak, free lance writer in the visual arts

     Knowing that As She Sees It, July’s art exhibit at Modern Arts Midtown, is an all-women’s group show, may imply to some a feminist tract, to others a simpler “woman’s touch.” In truth, it is neither extreme nor an average of the two. At a time when women artists are still under-represented and undervalued in the marketplace, MAM’s current exhibit clearly demonstrates that its stable of female 2D and3D artists create significant contemporary art regardless of gender.           
     “As She Sees It” features fifteen or more artists whose aesthetic is a product of one’s shared DNA and similar interests rather than a singular male or female bias or POV. In particular, artists such as Judith Burton, Jacqueline Kluver, Heidi Bartlett, Nancy Childs and Jennifer Homan, among others, create work that crosses over traditional masculine-feminine expectations of medium, style and content.
