From Darby McNally’s article for Paste magazine:

The exhibition has been curated by five prominent tastemakers in the visual arts community—all women, of course—and features “select works that reflect the multifaceted reality of womanhood in the 21st century and expand upon society’s traditional ideals of femininity.”

“While looking through the hundreds of wonderful submissions, I was mindful that the intended audience is unexpected passerby in public settings,” says curator Meryl Meisler. “The image needed to be visually powerful, and inspire the viewer to look, think and feel in a split second.” Artists whose works will be displayed include Allie Kelley, Beth Brown and Julie Orlick.

“The Future Is Female” launches Monday, June 26. The gallery exhibit will open Friday, July 7.
