The Future Is Female

Group Exhibition

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!“

Maya Angelou


Sulger-Buel Gallery cordially invites you to attend the opening reception of “The Future Is Female”, a group show bringing together the gallery’s women artists for the first time. The exhibition will celebrate diversity and a generation of artists embracing an interplay of experimenting with materials and process within their artistic practices. Featuring a series of recent works, The Future Is Female” as part of the gallery’s ongoing commitment in highlighting the representation of women artists.

The commonalities inculcated within each of these egalitarian pieces are themes of integrity, environmental conservation and cultural conservation all captured in an explosive narrative. In the great words of Donna Karan “I believe in the power of women. As nurturers, we have the ability to care and share and make the world a better place”

The nurturing manner in which artists like Ghizlane Sahli present the collateral beauty of recycling and re-use as a means to achieving such resplendent, ethereal, biomorphic organ-like shapes. This further consolidates the validity in the need for women to be involved in conversations that find themselves within the slipstream of international commentary which for long has remained predominantly patriarchal.

It is our hope that this group show will capture the importance of women in places of power as integral and not subject to tokenism. The future is indeed female!
