11 Oct MFA Alumni Kate Fitzpatrick featured in second annual Women in the Arts exhibition by Latela Curatorial
Latela Curatorial’s second annual Women in the Arts exhibition and programming series is open now, October 11-November 21. Launched digitally in Fall 2020 to uplift and center the work of 102 diverse women-identifying artists working in and around the nation’s capital, this year’s Women in the Arts will take place through multiple platforms including SIX exhibition satellite locations, a digital exhibition catalog, and a full roster of events online and in-person.
Today, in the year 2021, women artists’ sales still make up only 2% of the global market. Despite highly visible efforts to counter the absence of women artists in international museum collections, very little action has been directed toward this jarring discrepancy in emerging to established women artists’ primary survival mechanism: the creative economy. Further, DC, Maryland, and Virginia artists are working in a deeply engaged local art world that is at the red-hot center of the United States’ political landscape, and yet their voices are largely dismissed by the international art community and press.
Mason School of Art, MFA Alumni Kate Fitzpatrick, has two pieces featured in this show. These pieces are from a series that she is calling “Integral Flow.” When asked about Integral Flow, Fitzpatrick stated, “It’s more of a thought or a poem: Leaving the origin, dispersing. Beautiful turbulence. Diverging from the line, almost resting on the field. Different paths, aligning with the unfamiliar.”
All exhibition artworks are available for purchase. Collecting art is a joyful experience, which is also a direct investment to living artists and current culture. Let’s support our Alumni and all the female artists in this exhibition!
