Looking West: An Exhibition Highlighting Works by American Women Artists
Join Steamboat Art Museum for an opening reception of their newest exhibit on May 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. This juried show features 150 paintings and sculptures by members of American Women Artists (AWA) and is the fourth show in AWA's 25 in 25 campaign to have 25 museum shows for its members over the next 25 years. The exhibit will run May 24 through September 2.
Running concurrently with the AWA show at the Steamboat Art Museum will be a special show by AWA Master Member and Symposium Heide Presse. Her show, We Turned Our Faces Westward, One Woman’s Journey 1839-1848, is a collection of paintings and artworks bringing to life the people who were among the earliest participants in our country's westward migration, including period clothing, textiles, and material culture of the 1840s.
