‘Women Work’ @ Weber Gallery

Jan. 18-March 22

Weber Gallery
1151 S. Fourth St. • 584-1230

The phrase “women’s work” used to convey art created by women, thus automatically making it inferior to anything done by a man. It also denoted art that was deemed acceptable for women to pursue, such as china painting and embroidery. As a result, many female artists left their work unsigned or used a male pseudonym. So while the exhibition title “Women Work” is open for interpretation, it logically refers to work done by artists who just happen to be women, such as Sarah Lyon, Elmer Lucille Allen and Debra Lott. Since the Weber Gallery is part of the Council on Developmental Disabilities, the exhibition also includes work by girls and women with disabilities. The opening reception is Friday from 5:30-9 p.m. —Jo Anne Triplett
