“The Female Eye” at Gallery Henoch (NYC) is a group exhibition of 11 contemporary female realist painters investigating their present-day truths. The exhibition will be on view to the public through October 22, 2019.
The idea for this exhibition took form early in 2017, when women and women’s concerns were experiencing a notable resurgence. “For those of us at Gallery Henoch, featuring the work of our female artists has become a means to underscoring the talent and resilience of women everywhere,” the gallery says. “We hope to point towards a better future, one which affords women, especially women artists, increasingly greater visibility. Since its earliest inception by George Henoch Shechtman over 50 years ago, a relatively large percentage of the artists the gallery represents have been female. This is a part of our history of which we are particularly proud. Eleven of these artists have contributed paintings to ‘The Female Eye.’”
More from the gallery:
Because the artists in the current exhibition are female, there is no doubt that gender affects the way they experience themselves in the world, and thus the way they see and portray it. The title of this exhibition, “The Female Eye,” refers to this phenomenon. Yet within this group of 11 artists there is no “Women’s Art,” only women who do art, each conveying her own personal vision. In presenting the work of our artists who are women, we seek to demonstrate the diverse ways in which each creates her art.
