Los Angeles, California.- The Katherine Cone Gallery is pleased to present “California Girls”, on view from March 17th through April 21st. “California Girls” is a group exhibition of emerging contemporary California women artists, including Kelly Berg, Jennifer Celio, Olivia Hill and Vanessa Prager. There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday, March 17th, from 6-9 p.m. The exhibition is titled “California Girls” in celebration of Judy Chicago’s experiment in the 1970’s with young California women artists working to become professional artists in a mostly male dominated art world. Thus, this show focuses on the young California women artists of today who are creating their own trails to blaze. The documentary video “Judy Chicago and the California Girls”, which was Produced, Directed, and Edited by Judith Dancoff, will be displayed during the exhibition, as a homage to the young women artists of the past and a dedication to the future of young women artists and there role in today’s art world.
