Reception: Friday, June 14 from 6pm to 9pm
Artist Talk: Sunday, June 23 from 2pm to 4pm
Change/Transformation is presented by the members of the Women’s Caucus for Art of Greater Washington. The works carry the theme of personal, political, social, economic, cultural or any other kind of transformative change that occur throughout our lives. These work reflect change witnessed and experienced by the artists themselves, and also the transformation of the role of women in the society today. The Washington DC chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art is a community of women artists, curators, art historians, and art collectors. We encourage women of all cultures, ethnicities, and abilities to join us in our mission to create community through art, education, and social activism. WCA is committed to recognizing the contribution of women in the arts; providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development; expanding networking and exhibition opportunities for women; supporting local, national and global art activism; and advocating for equity in the arts for all.
