The Modern celebrates female artists with special exhibit

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will celebrate female artists with “Women Painting Women,” scheduled for May 15 through Sept. 25.

The thematic exhibition features 46 female artists who choose women as subject matter in their works.

The presentation spans international works from the late 1960s to the present, and recognizes female perspectives that have been underrepresented.

The exhibit is organized thematically rather than chronologically, designed to group young emerging artists with early trailblazers such as Alice Neel and Emma Amos.

The four themes highlighted in “Women Painting Women” are The Body, Nature Personified, Color as Portrait, and Selfhood.

The Modern depicts the exhibition as a way for female artists to share the stage with their more represented male counterparts in defining the image of woman and how it has evolved.

Tickets are $16 for adults; $12 for seniors over 60, active/retired military and first responders with ID; $10 for students with ID; and free under 18 and Modern members.

Go to themodern.org or call 817-738-9215 to buy tickets or for more information.
