Art Evolution is now a place for female artists. The reason?
Quite simply, to redress the inequality balance in the art world. Just as in the corporate world, discrimination towards women affects the art industry. The statistics
show just 40% of artists represented in galleries across Britain are women, and only 31% of artists are female in London-based galleries. And the scene is also similar for big art prizes. For example, since The Turner Prize was set up in 1984, only five of the 31 Turner Prize winners have been women.
So now our clear mission is to help women artists in Northumberland, the UK and further afield, to promote and sell their artwork online in an environment where they feel confident, comfortable, and empowered.
The response we've had so far has been fantastic!
Spreading the message that women are as valuable as men in art, as well as in business and in any other part of life, is vital. I’m very excited to offer the perfect way to recognise and celebrate the stunning work that female artists are creating.
