Women’s Work: The Petticoat Collective (Part I & II)September 1, 2020 - March 31, 2021
The Petticoat Painters is one of the oldest continuously exhibiting women’s art groups in the United States. It was formed in 1953 to showcase the talents of female artists at a time when women had difficulty finding venues to show their work. Seven women participated in the first show held at a local Sarasota gallery. These original members selected the name “Petticoat Painters,” thinking it would be a one-time opportunity. The name continues to be used today both in honor of the founders and to retain its historical signature.View Exhibit

Lisa DiFranza: Time Lapse 2020October 29, 2020 - January 18, 2021
Lisa DiFranza started her daily painting project in March 2020 when the Covid-19 health crisis emerged. The images she created are a diary of sorts, reflecting internal thoughts and dreams, daily surroundings, and the larger American political landscape, during the pandemic. As a collection, they chronicle the year, and the strange ways time has alternately seemed to slow down, then accelerate, only to slow down again — as the world is being transformed and reinvented.View Exhibit
