Some friends and
Women Artists is a Lansing-based networking and educational group
women artists. The group was founded in 1987 and has grown to include
as many as seventy-five artists, from students to professionals. WWA
has mounted many group exhibits, often presents a Holiday Arts Market,
raises funds for member activities and for the Ann Weir Award (an
local woman artist), and meets monthly for fun and mutual support. Bare
Bone is (was) their club house.
Sadly in semi-retirement since the passing of Robert Busby, our neighbor
in Lansing's Old Town, the Creole Gallery is a class act, offering
of visual art on its walls and a variety of indie music (jazz, folk,
not-yet-labeled) on its stage.

Some national and
online display of the work of a sizable number of women artists. One with
a link is the late Judith Anderson, a locally well-known printmaker and member
emerita of Working Women Artists.
Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington DC:
collection of women artists who have clawed their way into the margins
of the mainstream.
Some of the grrrls
doing the clawing. These are very witty and very rowdy women artists,
many of them with national reputations, who engage in street theater
and agitprop tactics against the male-dominated arts establishment under
the cover of their gorilla masks. Really fun--and wickedly effective.
Chicago, Through the Flower Homepage:
One of the
grandes dames of feminist art, still making art and trouble.
A fairly amazing
compendium of information and links about things artistic in general;
much about women artists is included.
