2019 Convergence, Women of the Pasadena Society of Artists: Neutra Institute Gallery and Museum Opening Reception: Sat. Mar. 9th, 6 PM – 8:30 PM
Statement from the Co-Chairs:
Convergence, defined as “two or more things coming together to form a new whole,” came about serendipitously. It started out humbly at the PSA Summer Party, where ideas for exhibition venues were tossed around between Lawrence Rodgers and Leah Knecht.
The list was later narrowed down to the Neutra Institute Museum and Gallery, and March was available. The original idea was to have a medium-specific theme, but since March happens to be International Women’s Month, Larry suggested a women-only exhibit. Naturally, we loved the concept! He graciously ceded the direction to us, and we agreed that to allow women to showcase their very best art, a few PSA Exhibition Standards had to be waived, plus it became a non-themed call.
We are so pleased with the enthusiastic responses, since this is the first all-woman exhibition PSA has had in its 94 years. Many members volunteered in advance, and the quality of the art was very impressive. Our juror did a fantastic job in selecting a cohesive group of artworks from over 100 pieces, and we wish we could have shown everything, but unfortunately, space wouldn’t allow it.
The last couple of years have been pivotal in women being recognized as leaders and creative forces, so this couldn’t have happened at a better time. Thank you to everyone who helped, including Dion Neutra, Dulce Stein, Mary Sherwood Brock, and a special thanks to Exhibition Chair Lawrence Rodgers for all the hard work he has put into making this happen, including designing this catalog and all printed and PR materials.
And thank you to all the artists involved for the outstanding art and participation. We hope this will be a memorable exhibit, and a chance to strengthen our connections as artists. This truly was a convergence of ideas, artistic styles, and teamwork, creating a new paradigm for the Pasadena Society of Artists.
