"Varied and rich, the Binder of Women refers to the name of a collective inspired to launch in 2017 and name their group of artists offer a 2012 debate comment by then-candidate Mitt Romney. It refers to both his comment and a meme that arose from it, in which Romney said he relied on “binders full of women” given to him by women’s groups as his way to handle pay disparity between the sexes.

Eleven artists from the collective present work in this terrific exhibition, which is filled with a wide range of mediums, styles, and subjects. By creating their own “binder” they are handling a different disparity – in artistic representation. Each work is strong. Exhibiting artists include Michelle Blade, Yasmine Diaz, Rema Ghuloum, Janna Ireland, Kysa Johnson, Galia Linn, Bruna Massadas, Sarana Mehra, Erin Morrison, Julia Schwartz, and Ginger Wolfe-Suarez.

Janna Ireland’s vividly colorful C-Print work of citrus, flowers, and children is visually as juicy as the fruit; while Galia Linn’s painted broken kiln shelves and glazed stoneware, from her “Untitled” Intentions Series, is as compelling as her other sculptural stoneware works in this show, each surreal and involving.

All of the artists’ work is well worth exploring – this is one “binder” that must be kept open..."
