The emphasis on women artists' work is important and long overdue. The 30 year gap between Then (the 1970s) and Now (the present) constitute many years of art creation and work by artists in this exhibition. Each is a personal prism of the artist, a personal experience, or the community's state of being.
I thank the artists who made this exhibition possible, and all the friends who supported and made Women Artists of Southern California: then & now a reality. We need women's sensibilities to break the pattern of wars and violence that dominate life and to revive the spirit of Peace.
