Feminist Art

The Feminist Art Movement is a continuing effort among feminists around the world to create art that conveys the female condition. In the 1960s, as second-wave feminism generated momentum in the United States, art was one of many cultural elements that women sought to influence. The process was two-fold and entailed creating public awareness of women who had impacted art throughout history, as well as exploring the role of women in the world of modern art. The Feminist Art movement made strides in the early 1970s, as supporters of the cause began to take organized action against institutional prejudice. The first ever feminist art program was established in 1970 at California State University, Fresno. The program was headed by Judy Chicago, an intrepid contributor to feminist art, and empowered female artists to collaborate and experiment. In 1971, the Ad Hoc Women Artists' Committee took aim at the exclusion of women artists by the Whitney Museum. Feminist art often seeks to present images related to the female body, female roles and labor, and sexuality. Artists creating feminist art challenge these components of gender in their traditional conceptions. Women and men, including Judy Chicago, Yasumasa Morimura, Faith Ringgold and Barbara Kruger have contributed to the movement with presentations of performance art, photography, painting, sculpture, installation art and traditional arts. All speak within the rhetoric of different media, but all address aspects of being a woman.

MisterArt.com has the absolute lowest price on the 20x26 size! I use them to protect my sample artwork on gallery wrapped canvas (18x24) and these help in transport to protect from scratching/marring. Plus, when it impresses the client when they see the canvas arrives protected in one of these. I'm waiting for them to get back in stock to order more. They are VERY popular for the reason I stated.

Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together. Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now). Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.

It's so pretty. I'm using it on a valance for a bedroom window and in my art journal. It would be great for a little girls room as a strip around the ceiling or for many things.
