It's been an interesting few days learning about female artists from the late 1800's through the 1960's. The Gibbes Museum new show Central to Their Lives:Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection is thought provoking. Art Historian Martha Severens presented a lecture today followed by a gallery tour. The work spans impressionism to cubism and shows the artists' grit and determination. Hard to imagine what they went through to study and create their work. Here are some close ups. Their personal journeys beg to be explored.
Have you seen the challenge on social media to name six female artists?
Piece of cake.

What a week. I also discovered a podcast that is the spirit sister of the Gibbes Museum show. Like peas and carrots.
