WPW all around!

Hey all, I've been a lousy correspondent of late for sure... but it's partially because some serious Women Painting Women exhibition awesomeness has been going on. Woot! Here's a photo from the juried exhibition at Principle Gallery Charleston in South Carolina on September 5 - a huge number of the participating artists showed up, from as far away as California, Nebraska, Colorado, Texas, New York, and more:

I'l post some more soon... but in the meantime, we have some more photos and such posted to the Women Painting Women Facebook page (be sure to "like" us... we recently just went over the 10,000 "likes" mark! Yay!) at this link. Also, be sure to check out the Women Painting Women blog, where we update more images of women by women painters.

The show received some nice coverage, all of which we haven't completely collected yet... but here's a mention from Fine Art Connisseur at this link. The magazine was also kind enough to cover the Women Painting Women-spawned "PayIt Forward" exhibition at Principle Gallery's original location in Alexandria, VA - here is the article on that show (whose concept was designed by artists Alia El-Bermani to share the spotlight not only with more women artists but also with local charities, who received proceeds from show sales).

Until soon! Happy painting!
