About Abstraction: Bay Area Women Painters
Opening Reception: Sunday, September 24th, 3 – 5 pm
Exhibition Dates: September 24 – December 17, 2017
Bedford Gallery at the Dean Lesher Center, Walnut Creek, CA

Political conversations have turned a renewed spotlight on women and their power and influence on every corner of society, including the arts. In the spirit of discovery, this show celebrates 16 Bay Area women artists, emerging and established, who have worked in abstraction for years. This show provides a platform for their work that features precise, powerful lines, as well as gestural patterns. These paintings suggest a kinship with the Abstract Expressionist movement of 1940s SoHo and San Francisco.

Participating Artists: Lorene Anderson, Eva Bovenzi, Donna Brookman, Heather Day, Amy Ellingson, Linda Geary, Rebekah Goldstein, Danielle Lawrence, Naomie Kremer, Michelle Mansour, Alicia McCarthy, Mel Prest, Cornelia Schulz, Ema Sintamarian, Michele Theberge, Canan Tolon.
