Art in Alternative Spaces

and 

Menopause The Musical

presents

40 x 40

an exhibition of self-portraits by women over the age of 40.

Nineteen "over forty" Chicago-area women artists have been chosen to create a self-portrait in the medium and style they choose as long as the art depicts how they currently see themselves. The theme of the show – I Celebrate Myself – A Self Portrait – is reflected in their pieces which were newly created for this exhibition.    Proceeds from the exhibition are split equally between the artist and the Women for Women Foundation. 

Participating artists include:

Betty Becker, Janet Bloch, Catherine Cajandig, Tiger Lily Cross, Marlene Diamond, Rita Dianni-Kaleel, Beverly Ellstrand, Alli Farkas, Barbara Grant, Kathy Karp, Sandi Kozlowski, Beatriz Ledesma, Jacqueline Moses, Marilyn O’Bryant, Julia Oehmke, Cindy Patriquen, Melissa Pierson, Molly Schiff, & Jill Zylke
