Women artists are concerned about responses to the “Can you name 5 women artists?” question. This question and the fact that of 590 major exhibitions by nearly 70 institutions in the U.S. from 2007-2013, only 27% were devoted to women artists. Work by women artists makes up only 3-5% of major permanent collections in the U.S. and Europe. (The Art Newspaper)
Seeking exhibition space and striving to promote art by women artists, Fort Worth 15 continues to present annual exhibitions of current work in all mediums.
