100 Years on | a Celebration of Women in the Arts
100 Years On | 8th March – 22nd March 2018 | Zebra One Gallery
Launch Party | Thursday 8th March 2018, 7 – 9pm
Exhibition Dates | 8th March – 22nd March 2018
Launching on March 8 – International Women’s Day – until 22 March, the exhibition will include pieces by artists including celebrated enfant terrible of the art world, Tracey Emin.
The Hampstead gallery will mark 100 years since women won the right to vote, while itself celebrating a milestone as it enters its 40th year in business. The show will feature a range of beautiful works from 15 prevalent and inspiring women artists, including Kate Garner’s iconic 1990s shots of a young Kate Moss clutching a teddy bear; never before seen artwork from one of Britain’s most distinguished contemporary artists Maggi Hambling; and pieces by Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf, who was a winner of the BBC’s ‘Show Me the Monet’ and recently became Vice President to the Society of Women Artists. Also on display will be art by Charlotte Posner, whose work has been used across the fashion and advertising worlds, including collaborations with style powerhouse Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons.
The work of each artist portrays a strong message in support of women and has been carefully curated by gallery owner, Gabrielle Du Ploy. Pop artist Monika Nowak’s work expresses a vision of today’s women – strong but fragile – portraying heroines as paradoxical and excessive but also soft and poetic, and Shani Joel’s work encourages freedom of self-expression for women in the modern world, inspired by their portrayal in the visual arts throughout history.
Zebra One Gallery director and curator of 100 Years On, Gabrielle Du Ploy, said, “Being the gallery’s 40th year in business and my tenth year as Director, we have decided that our first exhibition of 2018 will show women who are making their way in business and across the art world – showcasing the works and journeys of female artists.”
