31 Women Artists Exhibition
Over 220 women artists applied for the exhibition from 38 states and 8 countries representing work that has in some way been influenced by the surrealist movement. The scope of the exhibition is very diverse. Surrealist influence appears in abstract expressionism, process art, conceptual art, and various forms of magical realism and visionary art as well as collage, sculpture, assemblage, and painting that relies on evocative juxtaposition of various imagery. Because of its relationship to the unconscious and the mythic, surrealism has often been associated with a spiritual quest, situating art as a healer of the rift between nature and human reality through its unique creativity.
