The Fairer Sex

  • Jessica Hagen Fine Art + Design 9A Bridge Street Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

Although the term “the fairer sex” is considered dated due to its emphasis on the physical appearance of women, Jessica Hagen presents, with a wink, an exhibition that showcases sculpture, paintings, jewelry, textiles, ceramics and photography by twenty-plus contemporary female artists working in the United States. “I have always wanted to have an all-women’s show, and given the events of the last year and a half, from the women’s march to the #metoo movement, it seemed like the time was definitely right to host this exhibition,” states gallery owner Jessica Hagen. Women artists represent one half of Jessica Hagen’s roster, a positive statistic in a field where men often outnumber women.

This exhibition will run from July 22nd to August 19th.
