Through Her Eyes: Women Artists from Woodmere’s Collection


About the Exhibition

This small exhibition is part of (re)FOCUS, a citywide festival recognizing women artists and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1974 festival FOCUS: Philadelphia Focuses on Women in the Visual Arts. The 1974 festival included exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, and was one of the first large-scale surveys of the work of contemporary American women artists. Like it's predecessor, (re)FOCUS 2024 takes place at a number of visual arts institutions.

The show, on view in the Stairwell Gallery through August 25, 2024, features works of art by Cecilia Beaux, Selma Hortense Burke, Susette Inloes Schultz Keast, Anne Minich, Sarah Miriam Peale, Ellen Powell Tiberino, and Alice Kent Stoddard.
