California women create figurative art
"WomenÕs Figurative Art, An Appreciation of the Human Form," features the sculptural work of ten contemporary California women artists. The exhibit will open at Olive Hyde Art Gallery on Friday, February 15 and run through March 16.
Works to be displayed demanded a wide range of many skills and technologies along with rich traditions in sculpting and painting in their creation. Abilities in costuming and portraiture were also important in raising figures from ordinary to the figurative.
From diverse backgrounds such as Hollywood costume design, mixed media artist, doll artist, high school art teacher, fashion design, barber, quilter, desktop publisher and database management, seamstress, ghostwriter, and software engineer, ten greater Bay Area women have been united by a common passion for working with textiles, clay, paint, mixed media and design to create unique sculptural art.
Artists featured in ÒWomenÕs Figurative Art, An Appreciation of the Human FormÓ are Suzanne Duran, Wanda Fudge, Zanaib Nia Green, Bonnie Hoover, Daisy Kiehn, Kelly Mead, Donna Perry, Laurie Scott, Stephanie Smith, and Mary Porter Vaughan.
