MEMBERS OF WCA/DC FEATURED IN THE WASHINGTON POST REVIEW OF EXHIBIT AT THE ATHENAEUM

Washington Post

Wings From Chains

Wonder Woman and a little girl do laundry. Stock images of a 1950s housewife are printed on an apron. A woman emerges from a flower whose petals are gray flatirons. Such comic images of domestic emancipation are commonplace in “Wings From Chains,” organized by the Athenaeum on the occasion of the national meeting of the Women’s Caucus for Art last month in Washington.

The 14 local artists’ contributions are well made and often witty, even if some of the jibes appear dated. A collaged landscape has mountains made of female nudes, probably cut from magazines such as Playboy, whose “philosophy” is little studied these days. And although statistics indicate that women still do more housework than men, washing and ironing are perhaps not as central as they once were.


More contemporary are Ann Stoddard’s series of headscarves and wedding veils, demonstrating shared aspects of Muslim and Western women’s garb, and Cherie Redlinger’s charcoal of a female figure, altered by breast-cancer surgery yet essentially intact. It’s one of the simplest pieces here, and one of the most powerful.

Wings From Chains Was On view through March 13, 2016 at the Athenaeum, 201 Prince St., Alexandria
