Celebrate women in the arts, both as producers of work and protagonists within work, by returning to this blog featured in the 10-09-2020 Scout Report. Plus, readers will want to explore new posts discussing Lady Macbeth and Lucretia, among others.
Created by Natasha Moura (an independent writer, art curator, and educator), Women'n Art is "committed to the role of women in the arts and culture." This involves highlighting women artists and depictions of women in art. For example, a July 29, 2020 post discusses Maria Izquierdo, a painter who was the first Mexican woman to have a solo exhibition of her work in the United States in 1930. Another post, "Sirens and Mermaids" (published June 17, 2020), looks into depictions of women as mythological creatures, from 540 B.C. up to the 21st Century. The blog also features reviews of books, such as Whitney Chadwick's Women, Art, and Society (covered in an August 5, 2020 post), or of museum exhibitions, for example the May 6, 2020 post listing exhibitors of women artists cancelled or postponed due to the pandemic. Visitors can filter posts by month or conduct keyword searches using the query bar. The right-hand side of the site also includes a list of official artist websites and museums.
