INvision: an inside out view of the artmaking process
INvision asks provocatively: From where does this work originate? How does the artist negotiate the unchartered territory between the control of the medium and the surrender to the process, informed and guided internally and externally, yet without a predetermined result? How does the artist break the foundational rules of training and experience to head into the unchartered waters of discovery? How does the artist manifest an inner vision to render it accessible to the viewer?
As an artist confronts the control of the medium vs. the medium’s intrinsic nature, creativity becomes the catalyst. How the finished artwork develops may vary greatly by the way each artist seeks this balance between material and skill, between facilitator and creator.INvision offers insight into these questions. The viewer will witness the artist choosing to follow the free transformation of the materials and the evolution of the work on an unknown path.
The New York Society of Women Artists (NYSWA) announces the opening of its exhibition INvision” at the Art League of Long Island from May 6 through May 27, 2023. While NYSWA, founded in 1925, fosters creativity, innovation and advocates for the voice and vision of women artists, the Art League of Long Island enhances Long Island’s cultural life by promoting the appreciation, practice, and enjoyment of the visual arts. INvision will be hosted in its the beautiful Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.
Through INvision, the multi-generational and ethnically diverse members of NYSWA will present over 60 artworks in both 2 and 3 dimensions, in a vast array of mediums, highlighting the exploration of the individual, and the internal experience of the creative process.
The New York Society of Women Artists (NYSWA) was founded in 1925 when twenty-three painters and three sculptors banded together to formalize this group of passionate feminists and talented artists. From its inception, NYSWA was devoted to promoting avant-garde women artists by organizing exhibitions of their work and raising the status of female artists.

With New York City serving as the cultural gateway in the 1920's, the social and political climate of America was fertile territory for women artists to unite to express their avowed role in society: to demand freedom and recognition parallel to the Women's Suffragette Movement which had gained much ground. By uniting as a Society, NYSWA's founding women artists gained support and increased their exhibition opportunities.

NYSWA persists in strength as it nears its centennial and reflects the voices of its inter-generational, multi-ethnic members. The organization has nearly tripled in size and limits itself by charter to 60 active members—who continue to garner acclaim as they prevail with fortitude, making art in solidarity. With the conversation shifting to gender fluidity and bodily autonomy, NYSWA continues to question female gender stereotypes as they relate to perceived societal norms for women. Through their artwork, NYSWA members embrace the many facets of their own humanity, their self- perceptions, and continue the to fight to gain parity in the art world and art market.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00am – 8:00pm
Fridays and Saturdays 10:00am – 3:00pm
The Art League of Long Island is closed Sunday, Mondays, and Wednesdays.

“Go, soul, the body’s guest,
Upon a thankless errand;”
- The Lie, Sir Walter Raleigh

Ice Cream Social presents The Body’s Guest, a pop-up exhibition hosted at Studio 9D exploring both problematic and necessary modes of multiplicity within the self. The self, when fractured, is forced to reconcile, regenerate, and form a state of plasticity for the ever-modified structure. The “other” within soothes, quietly shuts the door, listens, rattles, reverberates, and becomes “they”. They counsel, entangle, feed from the reserve stocks, and sing the siren’s call.

The small group show includes painting, assemblage, sculpture, fiberwork, and analog + digital drawings. Featuring James Parker Foley, Carol Radsprecher, Farwah Rizvi, Alexandra Rutsch Brock, Nikki Schiro, Carter Shocket, Remy Sosa, Oakley Tapola, Carrie Wilmarth, and John Wright.
Join us for the reception on May 11th, National Twilight Zone Day, 7-9 pm!

Salmagundi Club 47 5th Avenue New York, NY 10003
While women’s work, contributions and stories have often been overlooked or left out of the history books, art has long been a way for women to document, learn and teach about the women’s experience.
The theme for Women’s History Month 2023 is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories” and we’ve assembled a panel of badass female artists who have a lot of stories to tell and much to say about the ways in which art can help further gender equality.
Contemporary female artists Alexi BrockSana MusasamaIndira CesarineBarbara LublinerBianca Romero and Katrina Majkut all work to pass on the heritage of the women's experiences , helping strengthen society's understanding of both the challenges and rewards of being a woman. They will discuss why it’s important to them to communicate the female experience and the ways in which their work has been influenced by the women who came before them.
