A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words: Paintings By U-M Faculty Women's Club

Now through June 13, 2013 -- Malletts Creek Branch: Exhibits

This exhibit features the collected works of the Painting Section of the University of Michigan's Faculty Women's Club (FWC). The exhibit covers a large variety of styles and media. The members of FWC strive to enrich the cultural life of the Ann Arbor area by raising awareness of, and by encouraging active participation in, the visual arts.

The FWC is a cross-campus organization, offering members acquaintance and fellowship. Members have been "painting" together since 1929, creating award-winning pieces in a wide variety of media, and learning from one another at weekly gatherings in their homes. Sharing experiences with new media, critiquing one another's work, and encouraging exploration in artistic expression are the basic elements of their continuing study of the visual arts as a group. Shows of their works have been displayed for the past 44 years at venues in the greater Ann Arbor area, including art fairs, art galleries, banks, churches, and libraries.
