LAYERS

Works of art have many layers; layers of interpretation, meaning, emotion and sometimes layers of color and materials. The women who create these works have underlying layers of understanding that are revealed in the process. Members of the peninsula chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art are invited to move through these layers and create work for this exhibit. Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme broadly yet tie together women’s character with artistic style. Others may choose to focus on the conceptual connotations.
