Have you ever wondered why you so rarely hear about women's contribution to the arts? Is Georgia O'Keeffe still the only women artist you have heard of? Have you ever noticed that ninety percent of almost all museum exhibitions seem to be exclusively male? Do you ever wonder if there have been any great woman artists? In this interactive discussion class you will discover that there most certainly have been hosts of talented and dedicated women in the arts. Unfortuately, until very recetly their contributions have been grossly neglected and undervalued. Women Artists Through the Ages will explore the vital role women have played in the art world from the Renasissance to present day. Each class willl include a visual presentation and an interactive discussion focused on the roles of women in the world of art from Renaissance times through present day. We will explore their role as artistss, patrons, collectors an gallerists. Topics include Women Artsists during the Renaissance, Women in the Impressionist Circle, Women in the Development (a Modern Aesthetic) and Women in the Contemporary Art World.
