Contemporary Women Artists XVII: Reimagining Femmage
February 20 – April 3, 2015
The St. Louis Chapter Women’s Caucus for Art presents Contemporary Women Artists XVII: Reimagining Femmage, an exhibition juried by Lisa Melandri, the Executive Director of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Inspired by feminist artist Miriam Schapiro, Reimagining Femmage invites the artist to draw upon the tenets she established. Schapiro is a Canadian who created art with materials traditionally relating to women’s lives and skills such as embroidery and quilting. She coined this art style with the term ‘femmage’ and is credited for establishing the Pattern and Decoration movement.
