“Do I still hope that feminist art can make a difference in the world? My answer is yes. I continue to believe that we need an art that can help us see the world through other people’s eyes and thereby lead us to a future where the world will be made at least a little more whole.” Judy Chicago

American Feminist Artist

art shows events We are changing things up here at Women in Art 278. First, have you noticed the new design for our website? We unveiled to new design a couple of weeks ago. We hope you find it easy to maneuver and find it visually appealing. We love it – but of course, we’re biased. (haha) Secondly, we are expanding on the “Events” tab on our Facebook page. We believe it’s important for artists to support artists. What’s better than seeing if there is an art exhibit or call to artists in your area of the globe? Art shows are awesome for a multitude of reasons. First of all, it’s a fun excuse to get out of the house and mingle with like-minded people (artists!!). Secondly, you may just meet an artist who inspires you or leaves you speechless. There are so many genres of art from fine art to performance art, contemporary art and other visual arts that have an ability to make our minds see things in new ways. So, consider art shows food for thought and nourishment for the soul. Additionally, as you network, you may learn about additional showcasing opportunities. You may have a new idea for a project. Seriously, the ways art shows make my mind go a mile a minute is such a wonderful feeling. Of course, we all react differently – one of the perks of art – so, go and see how it works for you! If you have an art show, call to artists or something of the sort that’s an event on Facebook, share it with us so we can share it with our community. Our goal is to offer artists and art lovers an opportunity to explore their local art communities while also sharing it with our international community. I travel often and sometimes I don’t know what’s going on in the city where I’m traveling. So, the events feed on our Facebook page may help people realize that there are cool things where they are traveling. That’s what’s new with us. What’s new with you?

italian artist

Aldina H Beganovic acrylic

Aldina’s

art is a refined elaboration of reality seen through the eyes of a dreamer. Her paintings are particularly audacious in color schemes giving nature an idyllic and poetic life. She was born in Bijeljina (former Yugoslavia) in 1963. H Beganovic has been garnering awards for her artwork since she was a youth. With a desire to help others, she earned a Masters degree in Therapy & Rehabilitation. Currently working in Italy, she uses her artistic talents to aid people in their relationships.

Carol Bostan Turkish-Themed Acrylic


Although

I have always loved art, it was my move to Turkey that truly fired my passion for painting. All my artwork is Turkish-themed. My paintings usually have a more abstract, rough textured background, concentrating on fine detail in the centre for contrast. They are brightly coloured, playing with light and shadows, inspired by the country’s love for colour, diverse culture and history.

oil painting

I travel

a lot and wherever I am and I must paint the country I live in. So I made paintings of France, of America, such as North Carolina, California and Vermont and paintings of India. In each country I am inspired differently, and I may paint landscapes, figures or street scenes.

My Work

is inspired by the beauty of the landscape and architecture as I travel. I keep a travel journal, whenever I go exploring by cycle, backpacking, running, climbing and walking. In my studio, I make larger and more permanent works using the diaries as source material.

Laurie Search Photography

I

have been taking pictures almost all of my life, but it is only in the last eight years or so that it’s taken on a whole new meaning and importance to me. After leaving my “regular” job because of health problems, I turned to photography, and it truly saved me. I am a very emotional person, and with photography, I not only get to express myself; I also have the pleasure of forgetting about all of my problems when I’m out shooting. The same applies when I’m doing digital post-production on a piece. The world disappears for a while.

Lynn Hopwood Nature Photography

Born

and raised in northern Minnesota, I moved to the state of Washington 26 years ago. I am a self-taught nature photographer and I am constantly in a state of learning more. I love the Pacific Northwest with its mountain, forests, animals, and beautiful landscapes. My hope is that people will see the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and will want to experience it for themselves by hiking or sight seeing.

American artist

Tristen Patriz Abstract Acrylic

I

have an immense appreciation for art in all of its forms from dance to sculpting to music to written/ spoken word to drawing and painting. It’s a true love affair with inner workings that often go misunderstood. My personal love for the arts began when I was a child with painting and photography. It progressed into a passionate culinary experience and profession, and has taken form once again in painting. My work is not derived from any one muse or issue, nor based upon any particular social commentary. Much of it comes from some sort of new understanding into the power and beauty I see in life. It could be something I felt while watching a ballerina dance, a chef prepare a meal, or a model walk the runway.

I believe there is an artistic translation and expression for everything. While there is no particular pattern I follow at this particular moment in time, I do find that movement and vivid color is what is most consistent in my work. There is the power to agitate or soothe in movement. The moment typically dictates which we’ll experience. Color is an ever useful communicator, and serves as effective subject matter. It speaks a language all its own, and currently I choose to focus on perfecting my use and understanding of it. For every work I complete, there is a new understanding and appreciation for it.
