an art Exhibition juried by Helen Klisser During and sponsored by The Women's Caucus for Art - CT Chapter, at the Burt Chernow Gallery in the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, CT.
Women Artists Pushing on the Boundaries. The question "Why Not?!" suggests freedom, boundary-stretching, new possibilities. To what established "No!" do women artists respond: "Why Not?!" The works in this show are the responses of women as they engage the question with personal, historical or universal issues.
The exhibit was open to applications from women artists from the following states:
New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.
One of my mixed media collages was accepted into this exhibit, I call it "By the People, for the People",
