THE HUDSON PROJECT | Raleigh, NC
This Fall, Artsuite is pleased to present an all women's exhibition at the historic Hudson building in the heart of downtown Raleigh. Located at 319 Fayetteville Street, the 4,200 sq. ft gallery provides a perfect venue for these remarkable works.
She's at the Hudson features works by Liz Nielsen, Leigh Suggs, Beverly McIver, Yuko Nogami Taylor, Sarah Emerson, Joy Drury Cox, Barbara Campbell Thomas, Susan Harbage Page and BA Thomas, and encompasses a variety of media including painting, photography, mixed media, drawing and textile. From Japanese Nihonga painting techniques to gouache on antique book pages, the works in the exhibition are diverse and engaging.
"Arts advocacy is a priority for Artsuite. Supporting women artists is critically important. Although women artists have been making art throughout history, their work, when compared to that of their male counterparts, has been overlooked, undervalued and obfuscated. We want to inspire art enthusiasts, collectors, as well as museums to invest in women artists." — — Marjorie Hodges, Artsuite co-founder
Artsuite is pleased to collaborate with SOCO Gallery to present the work of New York-based artist Liz Nielsen. All of the other artists are presented courtesy of Artsuite.
Private viewings are available by appointment. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule one, and stay tuned for events this Fall!
How did this exhibition come together?
“One of the core missions of Artsuite, is to build community through art. Group shows offer a unique opportunity to bring different artists together and share diverse works and perspectives with collectors. According to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, 51 percent of visual artists today are women. An all women show has been in our plans since the very beginning as has creative collaboration. We are thrilled to present She’s at the Hudson in collaboration with
SOCO Gallery.” — Marjorie Hodges, Artsuite co-founder
What is the curatorial framework for the show?
“She’s at the Hudson is about sharing the voices of accomplished and skilled women artists working in a variety of mediums. We started out with a more tightly curated idea and then decided to let the art set the tone. The hardest part was choosing the artists for the exhibition because there are so many talented women artists making beautiful work. ‘She’s at the Hudson”, as the title implies, signals that SHE IS HERE, SHE HAS ARRIVED. As a woman myself, I know that women are frequently subject to social categorization and stereotyping. This show is about avoiding all of that. She’s a woman and that’s enough.” — Marjorie Hodges, Artsuite co-founder
