Mad Art: Friday, 7 September 2007

The 14th biennial Contemporary Women Artist Exhibition XIV, opens September 7th at 7p.m. The exhibit, juried by artist Judy Onofrio focuses on works by women artists from across the nation and will be held at Mad Art Gallery in the historic Soulard neighborhood.

From over 200 submissions and 4 site specific installation proposals from across the country, Onofrio chose 55 pieces and 3 installations for the exhibition. "Because I believe that risk taking is essential to the growth of an artist, I found myself drawn to work that seemed to be on the brink of a significant breakthrough or discovery. The work reflected in this exhibition dealt not only with feminist issues but more personal and universal ones as well."

The show will run from September 7-29th. Mad Art Gallery is located across from the Anheuser-Busch Brewery at 2727 S. 12th Street. In addition to jurying the exhibition, Onofrio will present a lecture on her work on Thursday, September 6 at the Regional Arts Commission located at 6128 Delmar Blvd. and a Gallery talk at Mad Art on Friday September 7.
