Women Artists Collaborate for Art Show “Process”

Exhibition at Biola University honors women and delves into the artist process

A final piece of artwork is as significant as the process it took to create the work. In honor of Women’s History Month, an all women artist exhibition, titled “Process,” will highlight just that — the process of creating a successful piece of art.

With nearly twenty artists and works ranging in mediums from photography and painting to ceramics and sculpture, the unique art exhibition focusing on the artists’s process will display the discipline each woman took when creating the work, revealing the progression of the piece and artist.

Curated by photographer and Biola alumnus Shannon Leith (’09), “Process” is rooted in the idea that an artist must discipline herself in the practice of making art, and the product will flow out of that commitment. “Process” is a key element in Biola’s series of events themed, “Pearls in Process,” celebrating the creativity of women.

The art exhibit will be unveiled on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at 7 p.m. on the main floor of the Biola University library alongside activities that fully emerge attendees in the exhibition and the celebration of National Women’s History Month. Poetry will be read inspired by women and a special Heritage Room exhibit honoring women throughout Biola’s history will be revealed as well. With interactive art stations, live music and free vanilla lattes and iced mochas, the unveiling of “Process” will fully engage attendees.
