Women Artists: Four Centuries of Creativity
This fascinating exhibition examines works on paper—etchings, engravings, lithographs, drawings, watercolors, woodblock prints, and photographs—by some of the most important women artists of the last four centuries, with a selection of 37 examples from the Reading Public Museum’s fine permanent collection. The show chronicles the emergence of women as professionals in the field of art, and records the extraordinary creative contributions made over the centuries.
