Women and Arts 90s style

This morning I came across some old ephemera from a group I was involved in over twenty years ago in Brisbane.

Women and Arts (WandA), was started by a small group of proactive women artists looking for ways to promote the work of Brisbane women artists and writers.  Our first exhibition was held as part of International Women’s Day celebrations at Queensland Collage of Art.

Here is some information about WandA on a flyer that we used to circulate around the local arts scene at the time. The flyer was for a symposium we ran way back in 1995!

Over the years, some of the wonderful WandA women have moved on from Brisbane, exploring other landscapes of possibility. Most of us have continued working in the arts in one form or another – as curators, writers, artists and educators.

Here is an image of the fabulous Evelyn Hartogh performing at Bartleme Gallery, with one of my mixed media works in the background.

On a final note, here is an invite to one of our shows in 1997 “Women behaving badly”, don’t mind the Vagina Dentata
