Opening Today: ‘Two Strong Women’ by Júlíana Sveinsdóttir & Ruth Smith

Published June 19, 2015

Breaking into the visual arts in the early 1900s was no easy feat if you were a woman, or if you grew up on a small, isolated island—but that’s exactly what the Icelander Júlíana Sveinsdóttir and the Faroe Islander Ruth Smith achieved. This exhibit displays the work of these two seminal visual artists from the North Atlantic, which predominantly depicts the sublime landscapes of their respective home islands and the battle between land and sea. Not only is Júlíana and Ruth’s work extremely important in the history of women’s art, but also in the history of their homes in general. 

There will be an opening party for the exhibit and for two others opening today at 17:00.
