Represent: Alabama Women's Caucus for Art Member Showcase

August 14, 2017- October 15, 2017

 

Represent: ALWCA Member Showcase is about recognizing and celebrating the incredibly diverse and creative work of the members of the Alabama Women’s Caucus for the Arts. The aptly chosen Represent as the show title brings to mind the misrepresentation and historical underrepresentation of women in the arts. As such, in addition to showcasing their work in the exhibit, ALWCA members are also highlighting their vital contribution and necessary contribution to the arts in the southeast region of the United States. The individuals who make up ALWCA actively support each other and organize art events that bring imaginative play and critical dialogue to the community.

These artworks constitute the multiplicity of experiences and worldview that exist in the southeast. From tightly rendered oil paintings to abstracted multi-media sculpture, we as viewer-participants are rewarded with each artist’s remarkable skill and become privy to various insights and emotions. Loss, joy, pain, rapture, and solace are addressed or manifested in line, shape, and color. Political concerns and social issues are confronted using form and style. The work presented reflect a pursuit of excellence and a desire to communicate personal expression. Each artist is representing herself through her practice. By hosting ALWCA’s first members’ exhibit, Montgomery proclaims its support of innovative and creative women. The city of Montgomery reinforces its commitment to acknowledging women as significant shapers of the cultural life of the region.

The Alabama Women’s Caucus for Art is a professional organization for women in the arts. As a chapter of the national Women’s Caucus for Art organization, we support their mission to create community through art, education and social activism and promote women’s contributions to the arts. Established in 2015, ALWCA has served over 60 creative professionals through membership and outreach. We provide networking, exhibition opportunities, and professional development to our members in Alabama and the surrounding area.


The Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists gallery is located on the first floor of the RSA Tower in downtown Montgomery. The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm.
