Oils, watercolors and pastels, prints, drawings and sculptures, pottery, textiles, glass – the works of the women artists who are part of the Hickory Museum of Art Collection range as widely as those of their male colleagues. Yet HMA, while it has had one-person exhibitions by quite a few female artists over the years, usually involving borrowed art, has never exclusively celebrated the works by female artists in its own collection... until now.
The 2,500 square foot Coe Gallery will be filled with almost 100 objects, including perennial favorites, seldom displayed older works, less familiar works by familiar artists, and a selection of our most recent acquisitions. Many of the artists have North Carolina connections.
