Opening: Thursday February 22nd 5-8pm
Arena1 is pleased to announce the Women’s Caucus for Art 2018 national conference exhibition ART SPEAKS! Lend Your Voice. For the exhibition, Curator Jill Moniz selected abstract and representational artworks by 62 artists from across the country with the “idea of developing a visual fluency of the art of speaking… The exhibit feels right and aesthetically unabridged, full of emotion, meaning and remarkable art.” The exhibition opens with an artists reception Thursday, February 22 from 5 to 8pm and closes with a public conversation and reception Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 2 to 4 pm in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Jill Moniz is a well-known curator, writer and cultural activist. She recently mounted “Signifying Form” at the Landing Gallery and “Work Over School” for the Craft and Folk Art Museum.
The exhibition runs concurrent with the WCA and CAA national conferences in downtown Los Angeles and culminates in the Lifetime Achievement Awards on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
