Rising Voices: The Bennett Prize® for Women Figurative Realist Painters
Dates: March 24 - May 9
Hours: Wednesday - Saturday, 12 - 6pm
Admission is in the following time slots: 12-2pm, 2-4pm, and 4-6pm
Throughout history, the male gaze has been central in depicting the nude body, stripping autonomy, and inducing a sense of passivity from the female subject. Rising Voices challenges that typecast by inviting visitors to experience figurative work through the eyes of women. Ultimately, this show highlights and recognizes the achievements of women painters that have been too long overlooked at a time when the craft of realist painting is being re-discovered.
The exhibition consists of 29 works by the ten finalists and winner of the Bennett Prize, the largest art prize offered solely to women painters at $50,000. The Bennett Prize, which offers both the cash prize and a traveling solo exhibition to the winner, aims to promote women realist painters by showcasing their work and introducing talented women artists to a new generation of admirers and collectors.
