“EMERGING WOMEN” is a collection of exciting, modern and often historically significant works of art inspired by and selected from the recently published, groundbreaking 4-volume set of books: Emerging From the Shadows: A Survey of Women Artists Working in California 1860-1960.

The exhibition, curated by author Maurine St. Gaudens, consists of stimulating and captivating paintings and sculpture all created by women artists working in California as well as throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe; most of whom were previously unknown. The majority of the 80+ works have never been seen by the public before this thought-provoking exhibition which will leave you asking why were these talented artists left in the shadows and forgotten?

In addition, Maurine St. Gaudens, along with her colleagues Joseph Morsman and Maureen Siegel Sprowles, will be at Creative Arts Group on April 7, 2017, from 7-9pm to participate in a Q & A discussing the artists presented in Emerging from the Shadows and the influential role these adventurous women played in the development of the arts culture in California.

Q & A Discussion – April 7 from 7 – 9pm 

The exhibition will continue through April 26, 2017

Monday – Friday 10am-5pm
