This month, Pen and Brush, a nonprofit that showcases work by female artists and writers, is celebrating its 120th anniversary by breaking with its past. The organization, which tries to further women’s careers by introducing their work to the public, gallery owners and curators, is changing its selection process as well as how and where the work is shown.
The Pen and Brush, Inc. is an organization that has been dedicated to women in the arts since 1894. They have recently acquired a new space in the Flatiron District that will be opening later this year, which also happens to be the 120th anniversary of the organization. With all of these great new changes, we thought we would check in with Executive Director, Janice Sands, to give us an update.
The past and present reality of inequality for women artists is being considered around the world
Facebook is changing its review process to protect brands from having their advertising placed next to violent, sexual, or otherwise objectionable content, but critics say that the policy does not go far enough to remove the content altogether.
In January of this year, the Rema Hort Mann Foundation staged a lively panel discussion on the enduring disenfranchisement of women in the art market, moderated by the foundation’s director, Quang Bao. In response to Bao’s essay accompanying the podcast of the panel here at artcritical, Janice Sands offers her perspective on gender parity as director of Pen and Brush, the 119-year old nonprofit women’s art organization.
