Female artists have been largely ignored by major museums, galleries, and collectors and have often been marginalized by art historians. Less than 5% of the artists featured in world’s most popular art museums are female. You are much more likely to see a woman depicted in an artwork than to see a piece created by one. All-women group shows, which flourished in the 1980s and 1990s, are on the rise again.
For an institution of its size, the Everhart Museum has a remarkable number of works by female artists. This exhibition highlights women artists in the fine art collection. Works on paper, textiles, paintings, and sculpture are all featured including works by local artists Priscilla Longshore Garrett, Elizabeth Taylor and Hope Horn.
