"Nine artists, nine approaches to the question, 'What does it mean to be a woman and a painter?', which I asked the Slovak- and New York-based painters when I was preparing the 'Ladies of the Easel' exhibition. I was interested not only in finding out whether we see the role of women and painters differently, but also whether the topic is still relevant and alive today. In their work, the featured nine painters who work in different environments consciously or unconsciously reflect also on the fact that they are women and have to compete with their often more confident male colleagues in the artistic competition. The exhibition came naturally from my desire to connect and create exchange between women and painters I find interesting and inspiring, and whose work I can't get enough of. I encounter them at exhibitions and vernissages, and I imagine various combinations from their pieces. The exhibition represents just a small part of the work of female painters in Slovakia and a minuscule section of the Brooklyn female scene; yet, it makes me happy to see the diversity of work. The combination of selected artworks therefore led to the creation of a lively and personal exhibition and allowed for a meeting of female painters from such different context, yet many shared questions." –Juliana Mrvová, Curator 

'Ladies of the Easel' has been supported with public funds provided by the Slovak Arts Council and previously traveled to Ateliér XIII, Bratislava; Koniareň, Trebišov; A7ROOMS, Banská Bystrica; and Mestská galéria, Rimavská Sobota. The exhibition will be on view at Gloria's by appointment from Saturday, January 4th, through Wednesday, January 8th.

Please join us for an artist talk between 7-8:30pm on Sunday, January 5th, at The Footlight, conveniently located across the street from the gallery at 465 Seneca Avenue; we encourage you to visit the show prior to the conversation.
