The Women’s International Art Club (WIAC) - Sheer Verve
The Women’s International Art Club (WIAC) was founded in Paris in 1898 as an exhibition platform and networking forum for women artists at a time of restricted opportunities amidst a male-dominated art establishment. The inaugural exhibition at London’s Grafton Gallery in 1900 went on to become a feted annual event until the club was dissolved in 1978.
Encompassing paintings, drawings, sculpture and lithographs depicting portraiture, self-portraiture, the nude, landscapes, interiors, still life, and abstracts reflecting this wider history, the exhibition presents an exhilarating snapshot of the club’s correspondingly radical artistic output over seven decades.
Artists: Agar, Barns-Graham, Bell, Clough, Colquhoun, Frankenthaler, Frink, Garwood, Hepworth, John, Knight, Laurencin, Moss, Nicholson, Orovida, Rego, Steyn as well as Baranowska, Blow, Collet, Delaunay, Drucker, Flax, Delissa Joseph, Fraenkel, Gordine, Klinghoffer, Korn, Marks, Mayerson, Meidner, Nonnenmacher, Pillico, Reifenberg, Reizenstein, Tolansky and Wilczynski.
