Ann Arbor Women Artists 2013 Exhibit

Now through November 25, 2013 -- Downtown Library: 3rd Floor Exhibit and Downtown Library: Lower Level Display Cases and Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room Exhibit

Ann Arbor Women Artists is a non-profit organization of approximately 330+ women and men with connections to Ann Arbor, ranging from beginning to professional artists. The purpose of the AAWA is to stimulate creative expression and sharing among its members in order to continually raise the quality of the art produced. Each calendar year, the AAWA holds two or three juried shows. A juror is invited to select from a large group of submissions a final show that is a reflection of the body of work produced by the membership which ranges from beginning to professional artist.

The public is invited to hear a lecture by this year’s juror, Susan Wilczak, visiting Lecturer of Art History, Hope College in Holland, in association with the exhibit, on Thursday, October 17 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room. Ms. Wilczak will discuss Contemporary Women Artists of Curacao, a small southern Caribbean island which is an independent nation within the Kingdom of the Netherlands that has developed a vibrant, diverse, unique and refined art community. This lecture celebrates the art and culture of Curacao by focusing on women who are working studio artists on this small island just off the coast of Venezuela.

Refreshments will be served and the winners of the Ann Arbor Women Artists Fall 2013 Juried Exhibition will also be announced.
