Boxoffice Magazine

Those unfamiliar with art history or these five female artists will gain an appreciation for their artwork along with some basic knowledge of their career. However, art aficionados already familiar with them will feel mostly unenlightened and underwhelmed

Intimate opportunity to see successful women navigate the art world while infusing their work with feminist consciousness, but only glimpses of their lives and work process.
