Women in Art

3.9.2020 Afternoon all! As you know, Shadowboxerinc Factory is celebrating Women’s History Month and we are celebrating women in all things creative. Here I found some interesting women in art.       I’ve been trying to look for more women in art and this video caught my eye. Something to spark interest.  I wish I could find more, but it still frustrates me that there aren’t more women artists out there, but I’m optimistic that will change. Enjoy your Monday be blessed.   Featured image: Pinterest

There was plenty to see this year and Vulture has its list of best art shows of 2019.  Credit source: Vulture The 10 Best Art Shows of 2019   From an art-world protest to a radically original self-portraitist.
