ABOUT THE WOMEN’S CAUCUS FOR ART

The Women’s Caucus for Art was founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA). WCA is a national member organization unique in its multidisciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students, educators, and museum professionals. The mission of the Women’s Caucus for Art is to create community through art, education, and social activism. WCA is committed to recognizing the contribution of women in the arts; providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development; expanding networking and exhibition opportunities for women; supporting local, national and global art activism; and advocating for equity in the arts for all. As an NGO (non-governmental organization) of the United Nations, the Women’s Caucus for Art actively supports the UN Millennium Goals. WCA utilizes art as the universal language to engage artists, NGOS, and civil society on a broad range of issues such as gender equity and environmental sustainability. As a founding member of the Feminist Art Project, WCA is part of a collaborative national initiative celebrating the Feminist Art Movement and the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact of women on the visual arts, art history, and art practice, past and present. OUR MISSION: The mission of the Women’s Caucus for Art is to create community through art, education, and social activism. We are committed to:  recognizing the contributions of women in the arts  providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development  expanding networking and exhibition opportunities for women  supporting local, national, and global art activism  advocating for equity in the arts for all

FROM THE EXHIBITION DIRECTOR As the Women’s Caucus for Art National Exhibition Director since 2009, it has been an amazing journey but it is time to bid adieu as I announce that I am retiring from the Board and as the Exhibition Director -- as it has been one of my biggest joys and accomplishments having directed fifteen national exhibitions since 2009. It has been a great privilege over the years to work with all the artists, galleries/venues, jurors and the WCA members and Board. Composing the themes for the exhibitions, choosing the venues, working with museum professionals or gallerists that have been our jurors and then working with women artists from around the country has been fantastic and very fulfilling. One of my favorite things has been standing in the middle of the gallery after the installation is up and absorbing the incredible art and how it speaks to each other. It is magical! I've learned so much in this position as the exhibition director since and highly encourage and hope others will step up and participate as it is an excellent way to develop curatorial skills. And on the personal side, I’ve developed many deep friendships with artists I’ve met and worked with these exhibitions. I am so grateful for this, for everything. I firmly believe in the power of how art can change the world. And I am encouraged that the tide seems to be turning and women are getting more exposure in the arts. But I also must say that women need to be more vocal, do more and ask for more. Set the bar high and be relentless in pursuing your success. I’m going to do that for myself now. We are very pleased to have collaborated with the Target Gallery for this important exhibition Trending: Contemporary Art Now! and the opportunity to exhibit the work of self-identified women artists juried by Elizabeth Garvey, Co-Owner Garvey Simon Art Access. Twenty works by twelve artists will be showcased at the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, with an additional 101 works by fifty-two artists displayed online and on a slideshow monitor in the gallery. The artists displayed in the gallery are Sarah Boyts Yoder, Amy Cannestra, Sara DiDonato, Blond Jenny, Blythe King, Gayle Lorraine, Stacy Rexrode, Trina Smith, Rebecca Starry, Kate Walker, Margi Weir and Sarah West. Art can be a powerful, productive force and instrumental in sparking change or critical thinking. The Women’s Caucus for Art is committed to supporting local, national, and global art activism. Art can produce a visceral response and can provoke, inspire, or disturb, and opens your eyes to worlds other than your own. While the artist may not consider themselves to be a revolutionary, by bringing to light issues and concerns, art can effect change. We need artistic expression that helps us to understand what is happening in our society, who we are, where we come from and where we’re going. A huge thank you to Kaitlyn Ward, Director of the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center for partnering with us to put on this exhibition and Elizabeth Garvey, Garvey Simon Art Access, for compiling an incredible body of work on this theme from 305 artist submissions. Thank you to two amazing artists – Caren Helene Rudman and Sondra Schwetman, that assisted with the administration of the exhibition and Rozanne Hermelyn, Arc and Line Communication and Design, www.arcandline.com for the fabulous catalog cover design. And most of all, a heartfelt thanks to the Board and members of Women’s Caucus for Art for their ongoing work to create greater exposure for women in the arts and art as activism. It is bittersweet as I leave this position as Exhibition Director to fully focus and pursue my own art but the time is now and my advice to all as I say goodbye to pursue your art with a white hot passion. Karen Gutfreund Curator, Exhibition Director and Artist www.KarenGutfreund.com


FROM THE PRESIDENT This is a bitter sweet moment for the membership of the Women’s Caucus for Art and myself as this exhibition marks the end of Karen Gutfreund’s term as Exhibition Chair for the National Board. Over the years on the board myself I have seen many changes in many aspects of how the WCA functions but One of the biggest has been in the area of exhibitions. I still have CDs floating around my office from the artists who entered From the Center Now in Chicago at the Woman Made Gallery, juried by Lucy Lippard, way back in 2010. That year the board decided that we would under no uncertain circumstances, ever return CD’s to artists again. Six years later we completely computer automated thanks in part to Past President Priscilla Otani’s referral for us to start to use EntryThingy.com created by Chris Ritke as our data base, making managing images and jurying shows a million times faster and simpler. I truly hope we can continue at this current pace after Karen’s departure. She is leaving some mighty spiky heels to fill! Not just anyone can walk in them. Under Ms. Gutfreund’s tutelage we have seen our shows move from rental galleries to invitational opportunities; and the calls move from general opportunity to cutting edge feminist themes retaining their open quality allowing for anyone with the gift of art speak to parlé their work to fit the call. Once again this year’s show “Trending” at the Target Gallery, in Torpedo Factory, Alexandria VA, with Elizabeth Garvey as the Juror is another such success. Karen’s reach has brought in more outside artists then ever for this exhibition which in turn promises growth in our membership as more women artists outside of our membership have an opportunity to learn about what a great organization WCA is and what it does for women in the arts, beyond challenging opportunities to exhibit their art. Thanks to all involved in putting this show together, our juror Elizabeth Garvey, the staff and BIG THANKS to the director Kaitlyn Ward of the Target Gallery, to our exhibition volunteers Caren Helene Rudman and Sondra P. Schwetman and DC liaison Cherie Redlinger, and of course all the artists that enter our exhibitions. And finally Karen Gutfreund for her 5 long and transformative years as Exhibition Director, you’ve come a long way baby and you have brought us with you on that long and winding road. You will be missed. Brenda Oelbaum, President of the National WCA 2014-2016


Juror Statement The title of this exhibition, Trending, immediately brought to mind the #hashtag culture in which we currently find ourselves. Virtually everything and anything that is “au courant” (“trending” as we call it now) can be quickly digested in a millisecond for less than a megabyte in our “there’s an app for that” society. We are bombarded by so much imagery and information that our time is often spent quickly scanning rather than closely looking. Spending quality t-i-m-e experiencing a work of art is an integral part of the appreciation of it, both in the moment and during the inner dialogue that lingers on after a work is truly absorbed. I saw this exhibition as a small opportunity to reaffirm the importance of digging deeper and looking longer. Open-call juried shows are always an interesting mix, but in my experience an artist is too often represented by a single piece among a sea of many, so I created the opposite experience for the 12 artists selected. As often as possible, I selected more than one work by each artist to give them more than a #hashtag of presence in the exhibition, and to offer the viewer a wider context for that artist’s work and a more focused visual experience. I concentrated on artists whose work seemed unified and consistent – whose entries were cohesive and of one voice. I selected artists whose work seemed of our time, well-crafted, and of a variety of media. Works range from installation, video, vinyl adhesive, oil on panel, collage, 3-D photography, and found objects (even live ammo!). It was my pleasure to discover this rich group of diverse artists through this process. I hope that together they will provide an interesting cross-section of stimulating and inspiring work by contemporary “Trending” women artists. Elizabeth K. Garvey November 2015

Red Line of Fate detail Mixed Media Installation size varies 2013 Diversity and disability can be seen in many ways. Red Line of Fate explores temporary disability and long ranging effects. This piece starts a dialogue about brain aneurisms, surgery and subsequent cognitive effects. After three years I am still experiencing cognitive results from my aneurism, it has changed my memory construct. My brain is developing new pathways and work-a-rounds but occasionally I am finding that lost words or memories are either gone or show-up unexpectedly.
