For the past 2 days Margaret Parker and I have been at the Gallery at the Duderstadt Center at the University of Michigan setting up Man Up! No Balls About It, the exhibit for the Summer Conference of the Women’s Caucus for Art. As co-chairs of the exhibition committee of the Michigan Chapter of the WCA, we have been working like crazy for months. And happily, after all our efforts, the exhibition is just about ready and will open this Thursday on July 12.

“Ladder Unraveled” (pre-installation) by Margaret Parker

Local artists have been dropping off their artwork and shipments have been coming in from artists all over the United States and Canada. We are particularly grateful to Birgit Huttemann-Holz and Kathleen Letts for helping us unpack and lending their curatorial know-how, which included some serious “man power”, moving heavy exhibition pedestals and wall partitions.
“Neimandsland” by Birgit Huttemann-Holz

And we cannot forget the cheerful contributions of Amanda Moyer who helped us hang some of the bigger pieces and patiently aligned title and name cards, not to mention doing a little of touch up painting on the gallery walls.

“The Antithesis of Masculinity and Feminity” by Amanda Moyer

Thank you artists for your contributions, artistic and otherwise!!! We look forward to celebrating with you at the artist reception on July 20, 6-9 pm.
