American Women Artists Museum Show

I am so proud to be part of the American Women Artists exhibit at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA, which opens on tomorrow! Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the opening, but I'm thrilled that my piece sold in a pre-sale! It will be on display for the duration of the show.

Reception August 2, 6-8pm

A little bit of information about the show...

"For this exhibition, members of American Women Artists (AWA) were asked to create artwork that was inspired by a selection of 11 paintings from the Haggin Museum’s 19th – 20th-century art collection including works by William Merritt Chase, Albert Bierstadt, Rosa Bonheur, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and other notable artists. AWA artists have taken their inspiration from the work of art, the artist’s greater body of work, or the theme of the painting."

My own piece was inspired by the simple, but powerful composition of Jan Monchablon, a French painter from the late 1800's...
Early Afternoon by Jan Monchablon, 1886
