Continuing our annual show devoted to women artists, we are committed to bringing more gender equity to the world of art. This year O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is extending our reach beyond the Bay Area. Artists around the globe who identify as female are encouraged to submit.
This show is dedicated in honor of the pioneer women artists who paved the way. To name a few: Artemisia Gentileschi 1593 – c. 1656), Adélaïde Labille-Guiard (1749–1803), Harriet Powers (1839–1910), Augusta Savage (1892-1962), Lee Krasner (1908-1984), Louise Bourgeois (1911- 2010), Yayoi Kusama (1929 – present).
Jurors: Donna Seager & Suzanne Gray, owners and curators of one of the most prestigious galleries on the west coast, Seager Gray Gallery
A native of New Orleans, Donna Seager began in the art business in 1978. She was the director of Marlborough Gallery in Boston before moving to California in 1989. She continued to work in galleries in the bay area until 2005 when she opened her own gallery. Seager has distinguished herself for her discerning eye and commitment to the arts in her community. She has given lectures on the art of the book at international fairs in Miami and San Francisco. In six years, the gallery became a destination for artists and collectors all over the bay area.
Suzanne Gray, a resident of Mill Valley grew up in upstate New York and studied journalism and art history at Syracuse University and San Jose State. Her lifelong interest and background in art and art history landed her a position at Donna Seager Gallery where she became an integral part of the business and ultimately a valued partner. Gray’s skills extend themselves to professional art consultant services and she has overseen both commercial and residential art programs. Her knowledge of the art market, sophisticated eye and understanding of art placement have gained her the trust and respect of her clients.
