Developed by the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre
This exhibition features portraits of women by fifteen female artists. Women constitute 63% of living artists in Canada but in 2012, only 36% of solo exhibitions were by women, compared to 64% by men. This exhibition not only highlights the conceptual strength and facility each of the works conveys—it also celebrates the vast scope of femininity and the female psyche through the eyes of women.
What is TREX?
Since 1980, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts has supported a provincial Travelling Exhibition (TREX) Program. The TREX program strives to ensure every Albertan is provided with an opportunity to enjoy fully developed exhibitions.
