UniteWomen.org is pleased to announce the first of twelve featured artists in our online art show “Women’s Rights: An Artist’s Perspective“, Monica Neiman Sotomayor. Sotomayor’s artwork is entitled 5,000 – Ciudad Juarez. Since 1993 the phenomenon of the female homicides, femicides, in Ciudad Juárez has gone unchecked. It is estimated that 5,000 girls and young women have been murdered and/or are missing.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
After graduating from the University Of Edinburgh, College Of Art, with an MFA in glass, Monica Neiman Sotomayor continued her research as well as continued experimentation between glass, metal and other materials.
With the female condition as the focus of Sotomayor’s research and studio work, fragility, strength, vulnerability, and courage are characteristic concepts that drive the sculptures she produces.
Sotomayor believes it is imperative, as an artist and designer, to use expressive materials such as glass and metal to convey these qualities.
This online exhibition is in support of UniteWomen.org featured on this website and Facebook. The art will be shown in digital format via projection and digital picture frames at various conferences and events for women’s rights planned over the next year.
In addition to the online exhibit, there will be a gallery exhibit held during November 2013.
Show Dates: November 1 to November 24, 2013
Opening reception: Saturday, November 2nd.
