Women’s Caucus for Art

Carson, Good Old Girls Network for blog

Lucy Lippard is an internationally known writer, curator and art critic.  From the Center, the title of one of her 18 books provided the inspiration for the theme of the Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA) upcoming exhibit.   She is also the juror for the exhibit.  Woman Made Gallery in Chicago will house the exhibition opening January 22 and running until February 25, 2010.

The piece pictured is the one I just completed in time to enter the juried competition.  The artist notifications won’t be sent until November 17th.  Instead of waiting to find out if it is accepted.  I decided to post my entry now.  It would be great if I could get some feedback in advance.   It’s interesting to consider the value of a work of art prior to it receiving the stamp of approval by a juror.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
