    Something Revealed: California Women Artists Emerge, 1860-1960

    to
    12:00pm–5:00pm

    Historically marginalized? Relegated to “Sunday painters”? Encouraged to paint or sculpt children, still-lifes, puppies, kittens, ducklings, and a random landscape? Pasadena Museum of History's exhibition Something Revealed; California Women Artists Emerge, 1860-1960 stands to dispel the misconception that women were limited in their subject matter and demonstrates that women, especially here in California, have historically made their mark in a male-dominated world. 

    Even today, the role of men in the annals of art history frequently overshadows the artistic accomplishments made by women. The exhibition will show a long history of excellence in female-created art and prove that women could and did contribute to the evolution of style, technique, and exploration in the world of art.

    This exhibition of more than 200 pieces showcases just a fraction of the countless number of women who were working in the arts beginning in the mid-nineteenth century in California. Focusing on works produced between the mid-1800s through the 1950s, the exhibition presents an eclectic array of oil paintings, works on paper, ceramics, metal craft, textiles, and sculpture. Curated by Maurine St. Gaudens and accompanied by her four volume book, Emerging from the Shadows; A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860-1960, this exhibition will stimulate conversations and shatter any preconceived notions of the limitations of art created by women.

    Phase I runs from September 29, 2018 through January 13, 2019; Phase II opens January 20 and runs through March 31, 2019. The exhibition will be closed January 14-19. 

    Galleries are open Wednesdays-Sundays, 12 noon to 5:00pm.

    With [ME] Candy, NewTown Arts puts a spin on the bewitching "Selfie Factory" exhibitions taking the country by storm (Museum of Ice Cream, 29 Rooms, Happy Place, etc). Housed at the Armory Center for the Arts, the exhibition will be presented within a museum setting, each room using luscious superficiality to lure viewers into an experience of contemplation and scrutiny. 

    Seven Southern California artists have created their own mini exhibits, where visitors can travel from one room to another and immerse themselves inside the art. Experience ant-crawling sugar cubes, lushly exposed Hillary flowers, or cloth folded as wood. Come take a selfie and interact with the works but beyond the tantalizing photo op…consider. In a time of social and political unrest and also insatiable visual stimuli, NewTown offers artists the opportunity to make intoxicating work with something to say.

    Don’t miss this interactive selfie-fest. Camera feeds will document audience participation to NewTown’s website.
