100 Years 100 Women

Celebrating a Century of Suffrage

Aug 18th - Sep 6th, 2020

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote in the US. To celebrate the exact anniversary of the ammendment's ratification on August 18, The Clay Studio will mount an exhibition, 100 Women – 100 Years, featuring plates commemorating 100 inspirational women. We acknowledge that althougth winning Women's right to vote was an historic and important moment, it took many more decades for women of color and other marginalized groups in the US to truly gain full access to their right to vote.

50 artists have been invited to make 2 plates, each commemorating a woman important to them. The women each choose to represent can be famous, anonymous, or their own private inspirations. The artists selected reflect the true wide range of cultures and gender identities of people making art in clay.

We welcome all perspectives on this topic, and we embrace a wide definition of women, transgender, and female identifying people.

We are excited to present commemorative plates dedicated to women who these artists feel embody the spirit of female empowerment, and who deserve recognition for their contributions to society.
