For women, art was discovered by way of domestic craft. They would gather to create practical items. The practice became ritualistic, and a sacred time for them to commune. These craft mediums evolved from necessity, but creativity helped them develop meaning and value beyond practicality.Fine-art developed for aesthetic purposes independent of serving a utilitarian function. Presently, craft and fine-art often share space, blurring the lines of their historically separate definition. The dialogue of creation by way of necessity remains important, as we now gather in spaces beyond the domestic to create and to share our experience as women and as makers.As far back as history can remember, the presence of female and femme-identifying artists has been underrepresented, but nevertheless important; especially amidst the socio-political climate we currently find ourselves in.
Curators Casey Taylor and Elizabeth Ibarra present the group exhibition, GATHER.
It will take place from March 2nd – 23rd at Artbar Gallery in Kingston, NY during International Women’s Month, and will highlight work from women, femme, and non-binary identifying artists in the Hudson Valley & surrounding areas.
