“Women Painting Women” is a collaborative project, founded by Sadie Valeri, Alia El Bermani and Diane Feissel, that’s been represented by a blog since 2009, and showcased as an annual exhibition at the Principle Gallery in Charleston, SC for the past five years.
The title is perfectly descriptive, and the list of highly skilled participating artists continues to grow. The Principle Gallery’s website features an extensive slideshow of work from the current exhibition.
Pay it Forward is a concurrent exhibition at the Principle Gallery location in Alexandria, VA, in which the established artists are using their position to bring exposure to a group of younger artists.
The Principle Gallery’s websites tell when the shows begin, but leave us clueless as to how long they run, so your guess is as good as mine.
For more, see my previous post on the Women Painting Women blog.
[Addendum: The Principle Gallery’s director has been kind enough to let me know that the Women Painting Women exhibition continues through the end of September, with a few pieces remaining on view into October. She has also pointed to a PDF catalog for the show.]

I have a friend in that show! It looks wonderful, wish I could see it in person!!
I am grateful that at least we, women respect women, because Violence against women reaches pandemic proportions! Thank you, Charley.
To add to the predicament women are still living in today I’d like to add the 18 inspirational quotes of women of the world on the occasion of international woman’s day in March 2014. #15 – The late Lucille Ball’s has my preference.

Thank you so much for talking about this incredible show! Such a collection of art stars, I am honored to be among them.
And, now even more honored that you chose my painting, (the red one, “Her Humble Opinion”) to show on your blog when you talk about the Women Painting Women show! It really means a lot to me and I’m so thankful!
Keep up this lovely blog! Nothing beats lines and colors…pretty much what it’s all about!
My pleasure, Judy. Thanks for the nice words about Lines and Colors.
For the benefit of other readers, you can see more of Judy Takacs’ work on her blogs: Judy Takacs Paints People, and the humorously but accurately named: Chicks with Balls.
