On View: “Letting Us In” celebrates 150 drawings, paintings, and sculptures by women of the Florence Academy of Art.

From the organizers:

A room, a garden, a gaze. The women of the Florence Academy lay a path to somewhere deep, gorgeous, intensely personal. 80 graduates of the FAA’s 30 years of fine arts training, their diverse and highly personal visions are formed from an arts education that is meant to be foundational, a tradition these painters and sculptors have expanded upon or returned to in the 150 works assembled in this exhibition.

80 women who share with us their experiences and visions in this breadth of media and styles, from oil and bronze to mixed media and digital art, from classical representation to imaginative and abstracted figuration. We are delighted to give them this stage.
