Inspiring figures.

Continuing on the theme of women painter-related activities and exhibitions (from yesterday's post), I want to give props to the women who are exhibiting in The Butler Institute of American Art's "Inspiring Figures" exhibition, a project of the Cecilia Beaux Forum of the Portrait Society of America. One of the exhibiting artists is the Philadelphia area's own Alexandra Tyng, who will also be in the "Women Painting Women" exhibition and on the painting expedition in South Carolina this fall. Below is the painting Alex has in the "Inspiring Figures" exhibition, and this link will take you to her recap of the opening reception for the exhibition which she posted on her blog; her blog's main page is, take a look!
