This group exhibition, curated by Christi Furnas, showcases the power, talent, and creativity of women and femme artists ranging in age from 50 to 92 years old. Exhibiting art includes paintings, prints, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, mixed media, and mosaics from 35 Twin Cities artists.

Revolutionary: The Feminine Perspective Beyond 50 will be open February 15 through March 25, 2023 and is free to attend. A public opening reception will be held on February 17 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. In celebration of International Women’s Day and this timely exhibition, Fresh Eye Gallery will host an Artist Talk on March 8 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. inviting the community to engage in conversation with the artists’ and their work.
