The Latela Curatorial x Artsy: Women in the Arts Online Exhibition Room 6 is OPEN!

 

Invest in Women in the Arts!

The Latela Curatorial x Artsy: Women in the Arts Online Exhibition Room 6 is OPEN!

So much of creating art is related to surrender, which we highlight to remind ourselves that surrender is an act; a specific decision. Artwork in the last viewing room is about inner strength and trust, nonverbal communication, feeling and faith. When artists are rooted in deep purpose, what more is there to be depicted, studied or said about their practice? There is only to feel.


“8% of art galleries represent more women than men.” – National Museum of Women in the Arts


Do women make better subjects of art rather than as…
vessels of energy
vehicles of movement
containers of observations
nourishers of essence?

Washington DC, Maryland & Virginia are home to some of the most important museums in the world, however the emerging and mid-career art scenes across this area do not receive the same press, art fair representation or sales as competitive art meccas such as NYC, Miami or LA. Financially supporting this art scene communicates an investment to living artists and current culture; a commitment that is just as important as - if not more important than - appreciating museums and institutions. Purchasing artwork by women artists - especially those working so close in and around the Nation's Capital during this political time - is an investment in the future of #womeninthearts. 

A percentage of proceeds from artworks sold during this exhibition will benefit the GLB Memorial Fund for the Arts, which provides financial support to women artists and curators who reside in Washington DC, Maryland or Virginia to further advance women-led contemporary art initiatives.

ARTIST AS MOTHER :: ARTIST MOTHERS | ROOM 2 IS OPEN ON ARTSY

The Latela Curatorial x Artsy: Women in the Arts Online Exhibition is a 6-week virtual exhibition featuring 102 women artists working across multiple media from DC, MD & VA.

Artworks in this exhibition are available for sale. Purchasing art made by women artists supports the gap in pay, auction market, press and exhibition representation of women in the arts. Additionally, when you purchase artwork from this fair, you also support Latela Curatorial's mission to make space for women in arts management as Latela Curatorial is woman-owned and women-operated.

Women in the Arts, Room 2 ~ Artist as Mother :: Artist Mothers 

 An excerpt on #theworkwemustdo by curator Marta Staudinger:

“... a woman’s creative ability is her most valuable asset, for it gives outwardly and it feeds her inwardly at every level: psychic, spiritual, mental, emotive, and economic. The wild nature pours out endless possibilities, acts as birth channel, invigorates, slakes thirst, satiates our hunger for the deep and wild life. Ideally, this creative river has no dams on it, no diversions, and especially *no misuse.

Take away notes:

Do not misuse the creative river that which empowers & is taken care of by the woman artist.

She is a life-giver ~ honor + protect her energy.

GREAT MOMENTS IN ART IV - Works by Stephen Hansen

 


Represented by Zenith Gallery for 42 years 
Show Dates: October 9 - November 14, 2020  
 
RESTRICTIVE OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, October 9, 5-8 PM & Saturday, October 10, 2-6 PM 
Reserve your timed ticket for entry through Eventbrite | FRIDAY | SATURDAY 
1429 Iris Street, NW, Washington DC 20012-1409
VIEW EXHIBIT 
 
Automat - Hopper 


Full Fathom Five - Pollock 
 
Still Life with Cherries and Peaches - Cezanne 
In Stephen Hansen's fourth Great Moments in Art show at Zenith, he has meticulously recreated selections from centuries of painting and added his signature paper mache painters interacting with the paintings in ways both witty and surprising. Hansen says, "I started the Great Moments series in 2014, to take a break from sculpture. Then I decided I wanted to paint more. After six years, it still resonates with me. Through this series, I have developed late-in-life art appreciation. To quote Degas, "Painting is very easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do."
 
Hansen continues, "The painters represent my thoughts while working on the painting. For example, with the Picasso one presumes abstraction, but what if the model really looked like that? Or, with the Cezanne, could you really expect the cat to leave the still life still?"
 
"Under the present circumstances, while painting The Japanese Footbridge, I was thinking about Monet. In 1914, at the beginning of the Great War, with the sound of artillery audible in Giverny, Monet said, "I shall stay here regardless, and if those barbarians wish to kill me, I shall die among my canvases, in front of my life's work." In Monet's case, it might have been bravery; in mine it is avoidance."
 
Hansen has had one-man shows in galleries and museums in Detroit, Chicago, Santa Fe, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Scottsdale, Palm Beach, and New York. His unique paper mache sculptures are included in museum, corporate, private, and government collections including the New Mexico Capitol Art Collection in Santa Fe, The Federal Reserve, and Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and United States Embassies in Naples, Italy, and Caracas, Venezuela.
