Women's Work at RB Stevenson

by Patricia Frischer, coordinator SDVAN

There are two shows called Women’s Work on show in SD, so is this a trend?  R.B. Stevenson Gallery is showing a group including Tania Alcala, Joanne Hayakawa, Celia Reisman, Gail Roberts, Ellen Salk and Vicki Walsh until Oct 17. Sixteen more artists are included in the show at the San Diego Art Institute from Oct 2 to Nov 15. But there are men included in the second show which is tag lined Masculinity and Gender in Contemporary Fiber Art. The first is women working as artists and the second is fiber art categorized as women’s work but contemporized for the 21st century. Watch for the second report after Oct 2.

These three flower painting by Gail Roberts are extra-ordinary. The backgrounds just jump off the wall throwing the flowers in front of them..
