Something Revealed;

California Women Artists Emerge, 1860-1960

September 29, 2018 through April 13, 2019

Hailed by artnet® news as one of “32 Most Inspiring Museum Exhibitions to See Across the U.S.”, Something Revealed was recognized as one of the most celebrated fine art exhibitions in the nation. During its run, Something Revealed displayed over 350 works of art by 150 individual female artists, offering a new appreciation of these women who defied gender and expectation in an era of inequality. The exhibition, curated by Maurine St. Gaudens Studio was an extension of St. Gaudens' recently published four volume book Emerging from the Shadows; A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860-1960 (Schiffer Publishing, 2016).
