The National Museum of Women in the Arts has these Arkansas artists on their radar: Janet Frankovic, Endia Gomez, Nikki Hemphill, Thu Nguyen, Ruth Pasquine, Deborah Warren and Emily Wood. An exhibit of their work, "Women to Watch 2011," opens today in the main Butler Center gallery at the Arkansas Studies Institute, and the 2nd Friday Art Night reception from 5-8 p.m. tonight will feature live music.

If I'm ever in Washington, D.C., I'm heading straight to NMWA, which has in its collection art by women from the 16th century until the present. Those who believe that artists shouldn't be categorized and separated by gender and race have criticized NMWA. But how many 16th century female artists can you name? 17th century? I can come up with zippo. Here's a place to find out about them.
