In case you haven’t heard of Women Painting Women, its actually major movement now, started as a blog to spotlight women artists a few years ago by innovator artists, Alia El-BermaniDiane Feisel and Sadie Valeri. Over the past five years, this revolution has grown into multiple shows each September at some of the finest figurative art galleries across the country. And this year…after trying for a few years to get in, one of “Chicks with Balls” creator Judy Takacs paintings will be included! Yay!

The show opens tomorrow, September 5th at the Principle Gallery in Charleston, South Carolina from 6- 8 pm. As we know this is quite the voyage to make in 24-hour’s notice, so you can still check out Takacs’s solo exhibition in Oberlin, Ohio on the same night! And she will be there!

The Age of Adventure: Judy Takács Paints the Retired and Inspired includes selections of her paintings of seniors from the Solon Senior Center, the Nuns of Notre Dame and others. If you’re in the area over the weekend, check out the Gallery Talk with Judy at 4:30 pm tomorrow night (9/5). The Age of Adventure will be on display through October 5 at the Kendal Gallery at Oberlin.
