WEST CHESTER, PA — Inspirational Women, a solo exhibition by award-winning Chester County artist Merrill Weber, will take place from November 11 through November 30, 2021 (opening reception November 11), at the Huston Gallery in West Chester, PA. Hosted by the Chester County Art Association, the collection consists of more than 50 oil painting portraits of incredible, strong women by Merrill Weber. These are women who overcame hardships, broke records and blazed trails, shattering glass ceilings along the way. This show will make you feel inspired, confident and ready to make a difference in the world.
The featured women range from Mother Teresa to Lizzo, from Dolly Parton to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. According to Weber, “The inspiration for this show dates back four years ago, when the climate in the country made me worry about our future. The headlines spoke of hate, fear, violence and oppression. It was a time of reckoning for women in the United States.”
For Weber, the mission was clear. She wanted to educate, to empower. To raise appreciation for how far women have come, while acknowledging how far they have to go. Researching and painting each woman has given her hope. A brief biography will accompany each painting, making it a learning experience for both children and adults.
Merrill Weber is currently represented by seven fine art galleries. Her work has been included in hundreds of exhibitions, and in museums and collections throughout the world. Her loose and impressionistic paintings capture snippets of life in creative ways, sharing what is meaningful to her. Weber’s creations are described by collectors as imaginative, playful, happy and filled with energy and hope.
The Huston Gallery at the Chester County Art Association is located at 100 North Bradford Avenue, West Chester, PA 19382.
