Contemporary Renaissance Women
Artist Panel Discussion
The Banana Factory presents a panel discussion with select artists from Contemporary Renaissance Women. Moderated by Martha Posner, the discussion will focus on overcoming gender inequality and leading as a female artist. It will focus on what influences the studio practice and how to empower women to continue making. Opportunities exist for women artists to support each other.
Marilyn Minters can be quoted saying, “Art isn’t gender. It’s whether you have a vision or not.
