“The Candidate” has been selected for inclusion in the exhibition Reclamation at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, VT. The exhibition features nationally acclaimed, contemporary figurative women artists painting women from their perspective and experience. The show aims to make a strong statement to reclaim and transform the way women are portrayed. Through the work in this exhibition, we will view women in their lives and environments as active participants. By choosing to portray women, painted by women, in the traditional form of realistic figurative painting in contemporary times, we are also bringing to attention the long history of figurative painting, in which inequality is pervasive.
Women are the future and it’s past time for equality. Every step we make toward this goal is a step forward for humanity. The Helen Day Art Center is creating an exciting, dynamic show that actively engages the viewer in broadening their view of women in art and in the world we all share.
The exhibition opens June 15th and will run until September 8th. Inquiries may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
