Vishnu Bunny/Third Eye Gallery is proud to announce a special February First Friday event. Our friend Hannah Lynn is guest curator for Storytellers : Celebrating Female Artists. Hannah will be selecting artists, designing flyers and hanging the show. It’s her labor of love.
From Hannah Grapevine

“Storytellers” was born from my desire to showcase the great works of some of South Dakota’s best artists. From new artists to those whose work is well known in the community, I wanted to include a variety of different artists as well as mediums. The decision to make this show about female artists is one of great importance to me. Throughout history, the contributions of female artists have largely been forgotten, overshadowed by names of the opposite gender. Over 51% of visual artists today are women, yet their lack of representation in a gallery setting shows the discrimination they have faced. In creating a show that features only female artists, I am hoping to, in a sense, play catch up on the exhibits that failed to feature artists of differing genders or gender identities and break the glass ceiling that persists in the art world.
