Flights of Thought, detail of work

Working collaboratively--and with materials like thread, ink, video, photography, and ceramics--Nirmal Raja’s investigations can be intimate, beautiful, and wrenching. An interdisciplinary artist and curator, she carves a brave and questioning path via a persistent and focused practice.

5-10-100 is an exhibition celebrating the groundbreaking Women Artists Forward Fund and the fifth anniversary of the Forward Art Prize.

Lisa Marie Barber's ceramic assemblages and textiles encompass her imagined, decorative conceptions of home, gardens, peacefulness, playfulness, and celebration.

Jayne King's ceramic vessels explore the nature of memory, nostalgia and personal narrative, and how Jewish tradition informs their relationship to their family’s past and present. 

Mary Burns' hand-woven jacquard portraits celebrate and honor water, as well as the women who work with it, protect it and advocate for it.

In collaboration with her father who passed in 2021, Madeline Grace Martin's work honors his life as poet and writer.
