Save the Date for Rise!

Whitney Modern, in collaboration with Gutfreund Cornett Art, and guest juror Joan McLoughlin of McLoughlin Gallery, San Francisco, are pleased to present Rise: Empower, Change, Action! This juried exhibition features selected works in the gallery by thirty-six artists from locations around the country and additional twenty-five artists on a looping slideshow on a monitor in the gallery. If you are in the area, please join us for the reception and artist talk for Rise, Saturday, July 21, 12:30 – 3:30 pm (talk at 2:30).

RISE: Empower, Change and Action! brings artists into dialogue and brings forth what is important to self, community, our nation and the world at large through art that reflects on, addresses and seeks solutions for a more positive, empowering future, particularly for self-identified women and girls as well as their families. It is underpinned by the feminist principle that believes in political, economic and social equality for all. RISE emphasizes the commonalities of our human experience.

Join the conversation and see paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage and installations that speak for equality, independence and human rights while offering insight, healing and transformation.
