In tandem with International Woman’s Day/Month, Illuminated Muse features three female artists who demonstrate a diverse range in medium from painting, photography and multimedia art. Their work sheds light on the muted voices of women and female artists throughout history while questioning the portrayal of the female muse, a recurring theme throughout European and American art. Illuminated Muse begs viewers to be critical of the depiction and objectification of women, almost exclusively to be viewed as beautiful keepsakes.

DeVries, Maclean & Scharf reimagine the objectification of women in art and provide a refreshing narrative of the female muse stripped of the male gaze.
