Can you name #5WomenArtists? If not, maybe it’s because there are significantly fewer women artists in museum collections - despite equal numbers of male and female working artists. We are featuring a female, local artist daily throughout the month of March. Tell us who your favorite #5WomenArtists are.

Every March, @womeninthearts asks the question - can you name #5WomenArtists? In support of this campaign, which aims to counteract the underrepresentation of women in the arts, throughout the month of March we are introducing you to a small handful of female artists from the world of craft we think you should know 👩🏻‍🎨👩🏼‍🎨👩🏽‍🎨👩🏾‍🎨 This week we're focusing on FIBER artists from our permanent collection. Nancy MacKenzie created "Shaping Up" using applewood, waxed linen thread, Japanese paper, and textile interfacing. Her creative process involved working with materials (both natural and recycled man-made) collected around her home in Stillwater, MN. Her work transformed everyday materials in a way that captivates imagination and invites the viewer to look closer at the world around them. Nan's husband, Warren Mackenzie, was also an accomplished potter and Fuller has several of his pieces in our collection as well! Follow @womeninthearts for more on women in the arts, and stay tuned to @fullercraft for more female artists from our collection #fullercraftmuseum#fiber#fiberarts#nancymackenzie#contemporarycraft#womenshistorymonth

Merritt Johnson is a multidisciplinary artist who incorporates performance into her work in addition to painting, sculpture, and video. She is of Kanienkehaka (Mohawk), Blackfoot, Irish, and Swedish heritage. Her heritage inspires her art. A bright red line divides the composition in Johnson’s "Buffalo Vector Border Crossing (Yellowstone)," representing the border between protected and unprotected land for buffalo. The broken line, which actually seems to be bleeding, has been broken by the buffalo who are unaware of the borders invented by humans. "Crow booming the One Big Water, Gulls flying away" references the devastation caused by the 2010 explosion of the British Petroleum oil rig, Deepwater Horizon, and its impact on the environment. Both are on view in our Native American galleries. #5WomenArtists#WomensHistoryMonth#WomenInTheArts#FiveWomenArtists [Buffalo Vector Border Crossing (Yellowstone), Merritt Johnson, 2009, oil and alkyd on canvas, Collection of the Art Fund, Inc. at the Birmingham Museum of Art; Gift of the artist, AFI.463.2012, © Merritt Johnson Crow booming the One Big Water, Gulls flying away, Merritt Johnson, 2010, oil and alkyd on canvas, Collection of the Art Fund, Inc. at the Birmingham Museum of Art; Gift of the artist, AFI.462.2012, image, © Merritt Johnson ]

This week, MOPA is highlighting 5 living women artists from our permanent collection for #WomensHistoryMonth. Flor Garduño is one of Mexico’s leading photographers, whose work is inspired by the people, landscape, literature and art of her native country. Through a surrealist, dream-like perspective, her works recall ancient rituals and the power of the feminine. Her work was shown at MOPA in 2016 in an exhibition called Trilogy.

In this series of four monumental paintings executed between 1929 and 1942, Stettheimer created extraordinary composite visions of New York’s economic, social, and cultural institutions. The Cathedrals of Art is a fantastical portrait of the New York art world. Microcosms of three of the city’s major museums and their collections are watched over by their directors: the Museum of Modern Art (upper left), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (center), and the Whitney Museum of American Art (upper right).

“Is this something I can do?” When artist Maria “TooFly” Castillo (@toofly_nyc)
“Is this something I can do?” When artist Maria “TooFly” Castillo (@toofly_nyc) was asked by @terrapin_puppet_theatre to create the digital projections for the U.S. premiere of its acclaimed play for young audiences "You and Me and the Space Between," she hesitated. A highly respected urban artist, TooFly’s canvas has mostly been city walls. Her preferred medium: aerosol paint. She’d rarely worked in digital formats and never for live theater. But then she thought: “Of course I can! I have to jump into new situations so I can learn.” And she jumped in. In just two weeks, she mastered the software and created 85 digital projections, essentially an entirely new world for the play about a girl who must save her island from an environmental crisis by venturing into the unknown. TooFly is also a performer in the show, creating real-time animations alongside the narration. Born in #Ecuador and raised in Corona, #Queens, TooFly now splits her time between NYC and Quito. For her, the play’s themes of #immigration and #migration struck a chord. “I migrated from Ecuador with my family in the ’80s, so I understand the story,” she says. “It’s about meeting other people and other cultures in another country. Some people are happy. Some people go through really bad experiences, but eventually they find ways to connect and live in harmony within their world even though they have differences.” “You and Me and the Space Between” was written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, produced by Terrapin (Australia), and directed by Sam Routledge. It has been presented across the world, using local narrators and artists whenever possible to add a local flavor to the production. The run at Lincoln Center as part of Lincoln Center Education’s school programs and our LC Kids series concludes Wednesday, 3/20. . . . #LCKids#theater#theatre#theaterforyoungaudiences#performanceart#graffiti#instagraff#digitalgraffiti#ipadgraffiti#ig_graffiti#artecallejero#publicart#streetart#streetartglobe#graffiticulture#hiphop#graffitiart#graff#graffitiworld#urbanart#arteurbano#arturbain#instagraffiti#streetartandgraffiti#streetartwork#5WomenArtists

“Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.” - Agnes Martin
“Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.” - Agnes Martin . Since McKay Otto is showing at a Houston gallery (@nancylittlejohnfineart ) through the end of the month, it seems timely to look at Agnes Martin. Otto was one of two artists Martin mentored. . Born on a farm in rural Saskatchewan, Canada, Agnes Martin (1912-2004) immigrated to the United States in 1932 in the hopes of becoming a teacher. After earning a degree in art education, she moved to the desert plains of Taos, New Mexico, where she made abstract paintings with organic forms, which attracted the attention of renowned New York gallerist Betty Parsons, who convinced the artist to join her roster and move to New York in 1957. Though she often showed with other New York abstractionists, Martin’s focused pursuit charted new terrain that lay outside of both the broad gestural vocabulary of Abstract Expressionism and the systematic repetitions of Minimalism. Rather, her practice was tethered to spirituality and drew from a mix of Zen Buddhist and American Transcendentalist ideas. Her work is meditative and transformative. (And is really only SEEN in person.) . The MFAH and The Menil Collection both have two of her works in their collection. . #AgnesMartin#womeninthearts#abstractart#McKayOtto#5WomenArtists

Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) announced her intention to become a photographer at age 18. After apprenticing with a photographer in New York City, she moved to San Francisco and in 1919 established her own studio. During the 1920s and early 1930s, Lange worked as a portrait photographer, usually for San Francisco's upper classes. But by 1932, wanting to see a world different from the society families she had been photographing, Lange began shooting San Francisco's urban unemployed and labor unrest, which changed the direction of her photography career. In 1935 Lange accepted a position as a staff photographer with what would become the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Her work for the FSA took Lange to the South, where she documented small towns, the lives of tenant farmers, and experimental agricultural communities. Returning to the West, she focused on the lives of migrant workers. She continued to produce photographs for the federal government in rural California and Arizona through the Bureau of Agrivcultural Economics; photographed the internment of Japanese Americans for the War Relocation Authority during World War II, and captured the founding of the United Nations for the State Department in 1945. ... 📸 From @fdr_library: Farm Security Administration: Destitute pea pickers in California.

As we celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth, we join @womeninthearts to acknowledge #5WomenArtists everyday this week that have made an impact in the world of #architecture and #design, globally and at Gensler. It all started with a simple question: Can you name five women artists? Learn more about these trailblazing architects below.👇 • Marion Mahony Griffin was the world’s first woman to be officially licensed as an architect. She was Frank Lloyd Wright’s first employee. [Photo: National Library of Australia] • Chloethiel Woodward Smith was one of the first well-known women in American architecture and one of the most influential builders of #WashingtonDC after WWI. Her architecture firm, Smith & Satterlee, eventually became the largest female-run architectural firm in the nation. [Photo: Library of Congress] • Norma Merrick Sklarek became the first African American woman to become a registered architect in New York and California. She was the first woman of color to become a member of the AIA College of Fellows. [Photo: blackpast.org] • Zaha Hadid became the first woman ever to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the industry’s highest honor, in 2004. Her parametric designs ranged from architecture and urban planning to product and furniture design. [Photo: Dmitry Ternovoy, Wikimedia Commons] • Neri Oxman coined the term “material ecology” to describe the approach in which products and buildings are biologically informed and digitally engineered by, with and for nature. Oxman is a professor at the @mitmedialab, where she founded and directs the Mediated Matter research group.

Today we are recognizing Wendy Maruyama, a third generation Japanese-American artist and furniture maker born in 1952 in La Junta, CA as part of #5WomenArtists. Maruyama was the first deaf student, and one of the first women, to complete an MFA at the Rochester Institute of Technology's School for American Crafts (@rit_artdesign) in New York in 1980. Maruyama uses sweeping lines in the design of this desk from our collection, creating a wonderful sense of movement within a stationary piece of furniture. She combines traditional furniture elements with contemporary sculptural ideas. Maruyama also inserts colorful epoxy resin inlays on the desk's top, mimicking the wood inlays of earlier furniture. The violet-colored piece of plexiglass chosen for the drawer bottom, and the whimsical crayon scrawl across the top, suggest a child's uninhibited sense of creative freedom. Wendy Maruyama is a professor in the Furniture Design program at San Diego State University, California. She was an artist in residence from 1980-85 at the Appalachian Center for Crafts (part of @tntechuniversity) in Smithville, Tennessee. Her work has been exhibited widely in the United States and abroad and is included in numerous museum collections. The piece was made while she was working in Rochester, New York, and is currently on display in our exhibition "In Search of the New: Art in Tennessee After 1900." #wendymaruyama#furnituredesign#furniture#art#artist#woodwork#desk#writingtable#postmodern#postmodernism#tennesseestatemuseum

The weekend may be over, but don’t be sad - that just means it’s time for #MondayInTheVaults! This Monday we’re featuring another woman artist from our permanent collection, the talented Shinique Smith. This particular work by Smith is a lithograph from the artist’s 2017 residency at @tamarindinstitute. The piece, titled “Fortune’s Flower,” displays Smith’s characteristic calligraphic lines and dynamic use of color, while referencing the artist’s mixed media and installation work through the integration of three-dimensional paper and fiber elements. Evoking creative forms as diverse as graffiti, dance, and fashion, Smith’s work is a continuous celebration of movement and material. . . . . . . . #unmartmuseum#unmam#tamarindinstitute#printmaking#litho#lithography#inthemuseum#museumcollection#5womenartists#womenshistorymonth#womenartists#shiniquesmith#newmexicoart#abqart

Lucy Agid was born in San Pedro and studied at Otis Art Institute (now @otiscollege) in the 1950s. Carving in both marble and clay—the latter then cast in bronze—she creates sensuous and fluid sculptures that celebrate the human spirit. Here she conveys the joy of dance, a uniquely human activity. Of the feeling of life conveyed in her work she said: “With me it is continuous movement and rhythm and design. It’s seeing everyday life and conveying it in form.” + Can you name #5WomenArtists?

In “Seven Sisters”, Tjungkara Ken employs a rich palette and meticulous dotting
In “Seven Sisters”, Tjungkara Ken employs a rich palette and meticulous dotting composed into sections of parallel lines to suggest an aerial perspective of the patchwork of landforms that compose the vast and changing topography of her ancestral country, the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands in South Australia. The subject of the painting is a Dreaming—a story about the creation of the world by ancestral beings—in which the Seven Sisters (the Pleiades star cluster) are forever chased by Nyiru (a star in the Orion constellation), who wants to marry the eldest sister. The sisters travel to Earth to escape Nyiru’s unwanted attention and assume human form. Tjungkara’s painting depicts their journey across the desert. Circles and ovals represent important sites; traveling lines join them to mark the flight of the Seven Sisters. Like many Aboriginal Australian artists, for Tjungkara her artistic practice is an effort to preserve and communicate her religion and culture. By painting traditional stories on non-traditional materials for non-Aboriginal audiences, Tjungkara navigates the complex territory between embracing a cross-cultural world and protecting herself from being compromised by it. This work is currently on view in Levis Gallery in the exhibition “Global Conversations: Art in Dialogue.”

Lucy Qinnuayuak (1915-1982) was an Inuit graphic artist born in Salluit, Quebec.
Lucy Qinnuayuak (1915-1982) was an Inuit graphic artist born in Salluit, Quebec. She began drawing in the 1950s and later moved to Cape Dorset with her family. Qinnuayuak is a part of the first generation of Inuit graphic artists and is considered instrumental to the Cape Dorset graphic art movement. Qinnuayuak is known for her stylistic renderings of artic birds and often contrasted movement and stability in her works. This can be seen Seabirds (1971), as Qinnuayuak groups two open winged bird over four solid forms in this black and blue print. In 1976, Qinnuayuak’s work was selected for an Olympic banner and displayed at Art Gallery of Ontario. It was one out of ten drawings chosen from 400 submissions. Her work has been exhibited in more than eighty group and solo shows in national and international galleries. Thank you @leslo.rose for this post!

Joan Mitchell was a leading American Abstract Expressionist painter and printmaker. Working in an inventive gestural style, Mitchell’s works are characterized by their luminous layers of color and inspiration from nature. “My paintings are titled after they are finished. I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me—and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed,” she once reflected. #5womenartists#JoanMitchell#nationalwomenshistorymonth#painting#expressionist#wednesdaywisdom@joanmitchellfdn@womeninthearts

#133 Strike a pose. I detest being interviewed and photographed and yet I am asked all the time by someone about taking a my pic or to interview me. I automatically strike a pose but cringe inside. At 53, I am still not there yet, comfortable in my own skin and all that. #mixedmedia . . . #color#colorful#art#artwork#artgallery#afrocentric#supportblackart#artist#abstractart#contemporaryart#mixedmedia#contemporaryartist#expresionism#nycartist#artlife#melanin#tempera#paintings#herstory#bnw#blackart#instaart#afro#afro#african#womenhistorymonth#blacklatina#blacklatinaart#women#5womenartists@womeninthearts

Meant for a public art gallery, this open-work structure by Berkeley artist Mild
Meant for a public art gallery, this open-work structure by Berkeley artist Mildred Howard is a communal pavilion riddled with mirrored windows affording no privacy whatsoever. Instead, it offers an exercise in seeing and being seen. The visitor standing inside its walls is highlighted as the subject of scrutiny. This is not just because the person standing within happens to be reflected in myriad mirrored panels, but as it turns out, each of those panels has a window which anyone may peer through, at any time. It’s an interesting twist: the voyeur gets to witness him or herself in the reflections that ricochet. Inside or out, the canopy acts like a giant kaleidoscope, shifting reflections with every movement and change in vantage point. The house, one of Howard’s major themes, serves as a metaphor for the location of self, asking how do we know it, let alone recognize it? Public eye-private me counts as Howard’s largest such sculpture to date. At its core, as with Howard’s work more broadly, is the artist’s ongoing dissection of class, race, gender, public identity, private persona, and how the social construct of such categories originates, takes root, and perpetuates. • Mildred Howard (American, born 1945), public eye-private me, 2003. Powder-coated steel and laminated copper-plated mirrors, 120 in. x 96 in. x 132 in. (304.8 cm x 243.84 cm x 335.28 cm), Crocker Art Museum Purchase with contributions from The James Irvine Foundation, Gallery Paule Anglim and the artist. • #ArtOfTheDay#5WomenArtists#WomensHistoryMonth#Womxn#CrockerArt#Sacramento#Art#California#Art

Can’t stop, won’t stop showing you incredible Native women artists for #5womenartists and #womenshistorymonth! Redstar Price (Crow) developed her own style of Crow parfleche designs on canvas. She experimented with influences such as Hard–edge painting, geometric abstraction, and customary Crow parfleche patterns to create works like “Crow Parfleche” (1967). She painted this work while studying at @instituteofamericanindianarts (1965–1968), often focusing on colors customarily used in this art form. . . .

During the depression, artists like Minnetta Good (1895-1946) were commissioned to produce original art for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) that could be reproduced and sold for $5, making them accessible to the middle class. The images often depicted the strength of America through images of industry, architecture, science, and the land, along with the everyday life of the American people. “Threshing” (1930s, lithograph, Brunnier Art Museum permanent collection). #5WomenArtists

For Women's History Month and the #5WomenArtists campaign, we're featuring Rebecca Salsbury James (1891-1968). Born in England to American parents, James' family traveled for work with the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show. James painted on glass in reverse, beginning with the highlights and filling in the background last, the opposite of most painters' technique. A contemporary of O'Keeffe, she lived and worked in Taos, New Mexico for much of her life. [Pictured: "Cady Making a Nice Speech," 1934. Reverse oil painting on glass.] @womeninthearts• • • Follow along for more spotlights on women artists throughout the month.

She is known for female #nudes in dramatic poses and in natural landscapes. Some of them - like this one - are #selfportraits. When she exhibited this #photo for the first time, she was so criticized that she decided to withdraw it from display.

Re-visiting the P.2 work of the ever fabulous @dawndedeaux for this week's throw back. #5womenartists#womenshistorymonth#tbt - This is a brief sampler of "The Goddess Fortuna and Her Dunces In an Effort to Make Sense of It All" - a massive multimedia installation by artist Dawn DeDeaux that offered an interpretation of the novel 'Confederacy of Dunces' by John Kennedy Toole, highlighting the book's medieval roots and overture to centuries old dialogues between Fortuna and the philosopher Boethius on matters of FATE. The project utilizes sculptures, drawings and five video works installed throughout the 7000 square foot, three story historic Brulatour Mansion, surrounding a courtyard-turned-bedroom for protagonist Ignatius Reilly...The three minute sampler combines the film sources of Dawn DeDeaux, Craig Kraemer, Mike Smith, David Sullivan and Seth Tillett. This work was a presentation of Prospect New Orleans and the Historic New Orleans Collection, 2011-12. Copyright Dawn DeDeaux. For full video copy/paste http://vimeo.com/279189979

Gertrud Käsebier, John Murray Anderson and his wife posed at a window, 1910-1920 #libraryofcongress#americanart#20thcentury#earlyphotography#pictorialism - - - Gertrud Käsebier is famous for being a founding member of #photosecession, for her pictures of motherhood and for great portraits, particularly -but not only- of Native Americans. But I find her life equally interesting and inspiring. She began to study art at 37 at the Pratt Institute and she travelled to Europe to further her education. She fell in love with #photography and went on to be a professional #womanphotographer. She had an unhappy marriage but when her husband couldn’t work anymore she pushed the commercial side of her activity to support her family. Selling pictures to make a living was at odds with the artistic ideals of Alfred Stieglitz, the leader of Photo-Secession, that distanced himself from her. While Käsebier advised women to pursue a career in photography as professionals #5womenartists#arthistory#historyofart#dailyart#historyofphotography#womenhistorymonth
