This morning I received the lovliest email stating that two of my pieces have been selected as one of sixteen female artists whose work will be exhibited on the virtual gallery of the Women's Art Museum. The eventual goal is to create a museum that features the work of women artists - something that is very close to my heart:
The Women’s Art Museum Society of Canada was incorporated
October 2, 2006 under Alberta’s Societies Act by a small group of women who were
concerned with safeguarding and preserving women’s visual art heritage. The
objective of the Society is to open the doors to a museum that will house a
permanent collection of women’s art as well as display painting, drawings,
sculptures, photographs, prints, multi-media, video and technology based art
works created by women artists from coast to coast.
We know that this dream will take an incredible amount of human
resources and capital. Until we have a permanent locale, WAM will promote the
works of Canadian women artists through community projects and advocacy. We
welcome your support in making this dream come true.
I am honoured to be included. I'll let you know when the virtual gallery is ready :)
