The Female Gaze at PAFA

Michael Shelby Edwards, The Handless Maiden, 2008, PAFA, 2011.1.323


Over thirty years ago, Linda Lee Alter decided to collect art by women, building an extraordinarily diverse and powerful collection that includes some of the most influential female artists of the past 50 years.  


In celebration of these outstanding artists and their accomplishments, Alter recently gave her collection of close to 500 works to PAFA, allowing the public to see these remarkable works for the first time. Visit PAFA this fall and explore over 160 objects and their creators from the Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women.


The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making their World,on view November 17, 2012 - April 7, 2013, features modern and contemporary artists' depictions of themselves and their communities, a multiplicity of aesthetic viewpoints, working methods, and political perspectives.
