SOLILOQUY, an exhibition of recent works by the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors will be on view in the CTAC Gilbert Gallery from September 17th to November 19th. The exhibition, juried in June 2016, by Hubert Massey at the Anton Art Center in Mt. Clemens, includes two and three dimensional works by 35 members of the Society. The juror, a prominent Detroit muralist, said that he “…focused on ideas and creativity, color placement, technical abilities, use of visual ideas, skill, symmetry, and composition.” The Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors is one of the oldest self-sustaining women’s art organizations in the United States, founded by Lillian Burk Meeser on February 23, 1903. Its mission has been to quicken interest in art movements of the day, to stimulate high achievement, active work, and mutual helpfulness among members, and to provide encouragement and support for art students. The opening reception, to be held on Saturday, September 17th from 2-4 pm, is open to members, artists and their guests.

Learn more about the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors at our October 18 Coffee @ Ten Lecture with current DSWPS President, Jackie Rybinski. Jackie will discuss how the DSWPS paved the way for many female artists.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
