How many exhibition works:
‘...though she be but little, she is fierce.’
Helena - Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 3 - Scene 2
Independent online art retailer BobCat Gallery is collaborating with Cass Art to take over their Kingston Art Space this September, for an exhibition focused exclusively on female artists.
‘Tiny, But Fierce’ will showcase small scale artworks from BobCat Gallery artists identifying as female - highlighting the talent and varied perspectives of 20 women artists.
Catherine Sweet, Curator and Founder of BobCat Gallery, says: “This will be a lively exhibition of small but perfectly formed pieces, with a specially curated collection of painting, drawing, glass sculpture, printmaking and more.
Although many would ask, ‘doesn’t the art matter more than the gender of the artist?’, I would still argue that the inherent bias in the art world favours ‘male’ artists to this day.
While there are millions of talented female and/or womxn artists around the globe, they are routinely presented with fewer opportunities to show their work. That’s something I am determined to challenge, along with long standing cultural ideals about female roles, power and autonomy.”
Anne Sweet, Caroline Banks, Catherine Sweet, Clare Smith, Despina Symeou, Diana Burch, Jill Meager, Judy Century, Kira Phoenix K’Inan, Laura Fishman, Laura Parker, Linda Chapman, Patricia Bidi, Pernilla Iggstrom, Rebecca Tucker, Sal Jones, Siusan Patterson, Taya De La Cruz, Tonia Jillings, and special guest Laurence de Valmy.
A Private View will be held on Saturday 10th September, from 5pm - 8pm, with limited free tickets available via www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/tiny-but-fierce-private-view-tickets-322857524547
