"The Best Art Blog Project Virtual Challenge Cup" Award From the Making a Mark Blog

The Women Painting Women blog is honored to have been awarded

The Best Art Blog Project Virtual Challenge Cup 
by Katherine Tyrrell of the Making a Mark blog

Making a Mark writes:
"What the women had planned for 2013 fell only a little short of world domination! In the end, in 2013, the project organised and held SEVEN concurrent exhibitions and went international. Where do they go from here? Some National Portrait Gallery has got to pick them up at some point surely?

"This is an art blog project which started with an admirable set of values, achieved its goals and then changed up a gear and created a significant movement amongst painters. In all of this the art blog has proved a valuable tool for showcasing the work of various women artists and providing a place of reference and an accessible identity for their work."

Thanks for the recognition, Katherine!

WPW:(R)evolution & Call

We are excited to announce our next Women Painting Women exhibition!

Women Painting Women:(R)evolution  
September 20th- October 18th, 2013
Opening Reception: September 20th, 6:30 pm- 8pm

Principle Gallery
208 King Street
Alexandria, VA 22314
(703) 739-9326

The goal of this show—as with the group's past shows—is to expand the collective sense of what a woman is and means in the realm of art. Each artist that had exhibited at the previous WPW exhibition at Principle Gallery has been asked to invite one female artist to exhibit alongside them, thus multiplying the power and vision of the group twofold.  We are also asking other venues to host their own Women Painting Women exhibitions or events concurrently with this September show.  We envision that in September and October of 2013 we will see a rash of exhibitions celebrating and promoting the amazing figurative works we see coming from today's women artists.  

What can you do?  Please ask your own galleries or art venues to host a WPW exhibition of their own in September.  As with our previous exhibitions, we expect a lot of press, so if your gallery or museum is interested, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can add their name to the every growing list of participating venues.
