The Indiana Women's Caucus for Art is celebrating our 40th anniversary as an organization with an exhibit of member work at the South Bend Museum of Art, through August 12. Founded in 1978 as a chapter of the national Women's Caucus for Art, this group has given artistic support to me and many other women artists for four decades. These are my art friends. They have encouraged me, given helpful critiques and provided a circle of connection for most of my adult life. It can be isolating to be an artist, especially a woman artist, and IWCA has kept me focused and engaged in the work I am doing, and the wider art world. You can read more about how WCA has been creating opportunities for women in the visual arts by clicking the link in my sidebar. Nora McGreevy wrote a great article for the South Bend Tribune about the IWCA and the show, linked below:
Here are a few titles I have enjoyed this summer:
The Burgess Boys, by Elizabeth Strout; Across a Hundred Mountains, by Reyna Grande; Before Mars, by Emma Newman; and Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell.
