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?
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 are exhibited by themes or "viewing rooms" and accompanied by six full weeks of online programming, including artist talks, studio visits and more!
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. Statistics on the underrepresentation of women in the arts below.
THEMES / “VIEWING ROOMS”:
1. Materiality - In the Flesh; Women who Work with their Hands & Across Various Materials
2. Artist as Mother - Artist Mothers; The Creative Cycle & Ancestral Roles in Making Art
3. The Idea - Abstract to Surrealism Art
4. The Vision - Seeing & Being Seen
5. Action & Existence; Activism Art & the Value of Collections/Collecting

**To keep this online exhibition interactive, all featured artwork will populate weekly on the Latela Curatorial Artsy Exhibitions Pageby theme. The only opportunity to view all artwork featured at once (without waiting until week 6) is through the Collectors Package. See more below under “Become a VIP Collector”.
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.
