Curated by Ashley Layendecker
Women in the arts continue to be highly unrepresented in the art world, and it is important to change this status quo. Curated by Ashley Layendecker, Girls Favorite features a group of female artists that communicate ideas of abstraction through pattern and repetition. A selection of artists from New York, Alabama, Texas, and Tennessee will be showcased.
The title Girls Favorite comes from a name of a quilt pattern square. Quilts have a long history with being crafted by women to comfort and are comprised of pieces of stitched fabric to create a pattern or design. In this same vein, the women included in this show use pattern and repetition in their artwork, piecing together a community of artists that are communicating similar ideas.
