Latitude: The Washington Women’s Arts Center 1975-1987

June 16 - August 12

Latitude: The Washington Women’s Arts Center 1975-1987 will feature the art of former WWAC members and exhibitors, including TFAA artist Ann Barbieri.

The Washington Women’s Arts Center (WWAC), located at 1821 Q Street NW, then at the Lansburgh Cultural Center, was created in 1975 as a non-profit organization to provide professional support and opportunities for women in the arts. Throughout its history, the WWAC also sponsored speakers, produced literary and visual arts journals, and collaborated with other organizations to raise the profile of women artists in the Washington area and around the country.

Curated by Françoise Yohalem, it will showcase 90+ works produced between the years 1975-1987, some of which are iconic of that time. The show brings back the energy, passion, and talent of members when the WWAC was, for many, “the only show in town.” Recent works by WWAC artists will be featured in a slideshow and select interviews with members will appear in an accompanying documentary, Voices from the Washington Women’s Arts Center.

 

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 16, 6-9pm

Pushing Boundaties by Ellouise Schoettler: Sunday, June 24, 2-3PM

WWAC Panel Discussion: Saturday, July 21, 4-6:30PM
