Friends in New York, our gallery artist Diane Meyer has a new artwork curated into the exhibition, In Her Hands, at the Robert Mann Gallery. The exhibition features 15 women artists and is curated by Orly Cogan and Julie Peppito.
From the gallery's media release: "Cogan and Peppito understand that “by curating a show that elevates women in art and politics, it asserts that women’s work, which has historically referred to undervalued activities like cooking, child care and sewing, are extremely valuable but are also only a part of what women’s work means today.” Conceptually the show inspires female artists to create work that highlights other women who are working to advance their communities, their country, and the world by opposing the patriarchal system that typically uses force, domination, and division to exert control".
For the exhibition, Diane Meyer has made a special artwork in response to the curatorial concept. She will be showing a piece entitled Maxine (Maxine Waters), an archival pigment print with her signature hand-sewn embroidery and measuring 14" x 21".
The exhibition opens at Robert Mann Gallery, with a reception on Thursday, June 14th, 6:00–8:00pm.
