This exhibition features works by significant women artists who demonstrate an interest in pushing the limits of their medium, whether it is photography, drawing, or painting, as well as those who challenge traditional expectations of women’s subject matter. The show features works from the Big Daddy series by May Stevens, Nancy Graves’ lunar map prints, works by Barbara Kruger, Miriam Schapiro, Nancy Spero, Mary Frank, Sally Mann, Louise Nevelson, and Irene Rice Pereira. In addition there will be an installation of new work by contemporary lens-based artist Ellen Carey. Carey’s work explores the photographic process using large-format Polaroid cameras. Her large-scale images are abstract—they do not record images seen through a camera lens—but rather the chemical process of photography.
