Visual Arts faculty member, Li Huai, curates the first juried exhibition at the Women’s Museum of California. Capturing the Wonder of Women features 48 pieces including works from UCSD graduate students.

“The relocation of the Women’s Museum of California to the lovely environs of Liberty Station is a most welcome development. The museum’s potential for growth and impact is apparent to all. “Capturing the Wonder of Women” is an exhilarating way to celebrate this important moment. The exhibition features a wide range of artistic works created by members of our complex and colorful community.

The rich diversity of women in our community, indeed the “Wonder of Women,” is captured here by local and regional artists. These artists take up the issue of “life as experienced by women,” but they do so by making use of different media and contrasting visual strategies. The result is a dynamic tableau that testifies to the vitality, resilience, and potential of women in California and beyond”

150 regional artists submitted work to this exhibition. 47 were selected.The show was juried by Robert Pincus, Senior Art Writer, San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art. The show will run through February 24th. Gallery hours are noon to 4pm, Wednesday through Sunday.
