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.

This is not only the best eraser I've ever used, it's the ONLY eraser I'll ever use, despite the best sales pitches in art shops to get me to change. Cleans superbly, soft to use, no discoloration on the paper and cheap as chips...I don't believe it has a competitor

The watercolor dot cards is by and large one of the best products I've ever bought, and something I wish every watercolor company did. I bought this from Daniel Smith's official site, but it should be said here. The colors exceeded my expectations, especially for what you get which are small samples of all their colors available. They stretch a lot longer than you'd expect, and the colors themselves are beyond marvelous. I plan on buying a few full size paint tubes for my supplies.

I bought a set of these from HSN. I am always looking for scissors, especially since I am left handed and I have to turn scissors upside down in the first place for them to cut. They came and I used them. Then I bought another set and then another set. They are the best scissors on the market, bar none. They are comfortable to hold, sharper than any scissors I have ever used, and I love them. I have a set downstairs, I have a set upstairs, and I have a set in my travel tote. I would recommend these scissors without hesitation.
