People came to look at art; they really did. May 5th, 2010, marked the debut exhibit by the International Women Artists' Salon, a cross-disciplinary group of women artists, at Lolita Bar on 266 Broome Street in NYC. The opening had people rubbing elbows, as a larger than expected crowd of 150 to 200 guests talked about the artwork and the importance of the Salon in fostering a dialogue among artists around the world.
Curated by Heather Young, and installed by Cornelia Jensen, the exhibition seamlessly integrated sculpture, photography, painting, and other mixed media. International Women Artists' Salon founder, Heidi Russell, has been the driving force behind what is now a global movement, with enough talent to bank on and goodwill to spend freely.
Having conceded the inaugural exhibition’s initial success, patrons will also be treated to performance art as well as video/film art and literary readings at Lolita Bar until the show closes at the end of June.
Many thanks to Katie Kutcher and her gracious staff at Lolita Bar for furthering our cause and keeping up the sprit. I hope they were remembered fondly when it was time to cash out!
This blog will continue to update all with information on the performance, film/video, and literature reading events, as well as special coverage of the women of International Women Artists' Salon.
Note: sculpture will not be on exhibition for the remainder of the show due to venue constraints, but can be viewed online.
