We are going to continue the theme of highlighting women artists this year by showcasing eleven female artists from every show. The jurors of the Kewpee High School Invitational Show have designated 11 young women who have made an impact with their art.

All of these 11 Women's work (below) show exceptional skill and promise, from the quality of the work to the message within the pieces. Congratulations!

The students to watch: 

LCC: Hayley Chambers, Bryan: Sierra Miller, Bluffton: Kally Cotter, Ada: Ayla Tabler, Wayne Trace: Fern Jackson, Ridgemont: Grace Musson, Miller City: Mya Brown, Pandora-Gilboa: Anna Averesch, Lima Senior: Rachel Fronzaglia, Hailey Hahn, and Alyvia Kiser

A New World: Women to Watch

January 13th-March 9th

In collaboration with the Ohio Advisory Group to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, ArtSpace/Lima is proud to house the exhibition “A New World: Ohio Women to Watch 2023” at the beginning of the 2024 year. The eleven artists in this show have been chosen by co-curators Sso-Rha Khang and Matt Distel for their wide range of concepts and material execution in their work. These women challenge dominant systems of thought and navigation of the world through their alternative ways of perceiving their own worlds. The results shown in their artwork offer engaging interpretations of the multitude of realities that reimagine our very world. As Khang and Distel explain, “These works possess an uncanny familiarity that is disrupted by unnerving alterations that challenge us to look closer and critically examine what we know.”

The Artists: Kat Burdine, Kara Gut, Sharon Koelblinger, Calista Lyon, Mychaelyn Michalec, Migiwa Orimo, Kristina Paabus, Erykah Townsend, Catherine Whited, Xia Zhang.
