In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Village Theatre Art Gallery has partnered with the Bay Area Studio Artists painting group (BASA) to show art by women inspired by women in an exhibition titled Women Who Dare. The exhibition will be on view at The Village Theatre Art Gallery, 233 Front St. in Danville, from March 24 to May 20, 2022.
Women Who Dare fittingly includes imagery portraying women who are recognized as trailblazers, leaders, and innovators of their time. Visitors to the gallery might recognize contemporary women and girls who dare to challenge societal norms to achieve their dreams in present times, as well as the familiar faces of influential women from history. The paintings range from colorful and lively portrayals to quiet and reflective renderings of women who cared deeply and lived boldly and bravely.
BASA is comprised of women artists who reside in the Bay Area. This exhibit has been organized and co-curated by Joanne Taeuffer and Marcy Wheeler. It features the artwork of Suzun Almquist, Jeanette Baird, Lassie Colebourn, Ellen Reintjes, Ruth Stanton, Joanne Taeuffer, Sharon Tama, and Marcy Wheeler.
An opening reception for this exhibition will be held on Thursday, March 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. As always, the reception is free and open to the public.
The Village Theatre and Art Gallery is currently open to visitors Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. All other days by appointment only.
