January 1 – August 30, 2020
It’s the year 2020, and the Art Museum is celebrating women and all of their accomplishments, particularly in the arts. The Power of She is an exhibition of nearly 40 works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection featuring work created by, thematically representative of and/or commemorating women, femininity and girl power. Objects on display will include a drawing by the late locally renowned artist and humanitarian, Genevieve Willcox Chandler (1890 – 1980), as well as paintings and sculpture by contemporary artists Sigmund Abeles, Alice Ballard, Dixie Dugan, Cassandra Gillens, Jonathan Green, Betsy Havens, Elizabeth Keller, Jennifer Falck Linssen, Kate Hooray Osmond, Betty Anglin Smith and more. Both visually stunning and technically impressive, this body of work is a wonderful way to experience the beauty and power of the collective “SHE.”
