31 Women
March 1 - April 12, 2020
Opening Event: Sunday, March 8th, 2020 12:00 - 4:00 PM
International Women's Day

Opening March 1st and on view through April 12th, 2020, Whitney Modern Gallery is

pleased to present 31 Women, an exhibition curated by Marianne McGrath with Karen

Gutfreund and Suzanne Whitney-Smedt. 31 Women celebrates the work of 31 female

artists in honor of Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month annually

commemorates women’s contributions to history, culture and society throughout the

United States. 2020 is an especially exciting and powerful year for women as it is also

the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted the right to vote to women

in the United States.

Highlighted individually throughout the exhibition are each artist’s process and

inspiration, as well as her sense of connection to women in history and art history.

Along with the show at Whitney Modern, artists will be featured on social media, blogs,

websites and in the gallery – one woman a day for the month of March. This aspect of

the show is intended to be a virtual exhibition that will be available to those out of the

area, and it provides an opportunity to focus on a particular woman artist, emphasizing

her unique practice and contributions to the art community.

Exhibiting artists from the Bay Area and beyond include: Shannon Amidon, Elizabeth

Barlow, Marie Cameron, Linda Christensen, Jennifer Cole, Sara V. Cole, Kim Frohsin,

Karen Gallagher-Iverson, Carla Goldberg, Michelle Greggor, Laura Gurton, Christine

Hayman, Ellen Heck, Rozanne Hermelyn, Kelsey Irvin, Ivy Jacobsen, Julia Jensen,

Pantea Karimi, Sherry Karver, Michelle Mansour, Brigitte McReynolds, Lisa Noonis,

Sandy Ostrau, Stephanie Peek, Jennifer Pochinski, Astrid Preston, Carole Rafferty,

Sawyer Rose, Jeanne Vadeboncoeur, Josette Urso, and Elena Zolotnisky
