*articulation--n: the act of joining things in such a way that motion is possible.

These are a few sites that we have found relevant and useful.
(The links will open in separate browser windows.)

Some friends and neighbors:

Working Women Artists:

Working Women Artists is a Lansing-based networking and educational group of self-defined...working 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 annual fellowship for an emerging local woman artist), and meets monthly for fun and mutual support. Bare Bone is (was) their club house.

Creole Gallery:

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 shows of visual art on its walls and a variety of indie music (jazz, folk, not-yet-labeled) on its stage.

The City Pulse:

The electronic newspaper of record for Old Town and for Lansing's extended arts community in general.

Some national and international connections:

WomanMade Gallery:

An exciting 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.

National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington DC:

The flagship collection of women artists who have clawed their way into the margins of the mainstream.

Guerrilla Girls:

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.

Judy Chicago, Through the Flower Homepage:

One of the grandes dames of feminist art, still making art and trouble.

World-Wide Arts Resources:

A fairly amazing compendium of information and links about things artistic in general; much about women artists is included.
