Continuing our annual show devoted to women artists, O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is committed to amplifying the creative vision of today's women artists across the globe helping to bring more gender equity to the world of art. This 13th year we continue to extend our reach around the globe by hosting the show in an ONLINE format; we invite a warm welcome to all artists who identify as female and encouraged them to submit to this popular show.

Women Artists Making Their Mark 2021 is dedicated to living working artists known and yet to be discovered: women artists making their mark and changing the landscape of contemporary art. Yayoi Kusama, Judy Chicago, Naibah Chacon, Wangechi Mutu and Chakaia Booker to name a few.

OHCA Herstory: Ann and Richard O’Hanlon founded Sight & Insight Art Center in 1969; today, their students and those attracted to their approach to creativity keep up the thriving operation. In 2004, Sight & Insight was changed to O’Hanlon Center for the Arts, to reflect the growing offerings in the Literary, Performing, and Healing Arts.

Mission: O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is a nonprofit educational organization 501(c)3 whose mission is to provide an environment and spaces where creativity and community can develop, expand and flourish.

About the Jurors:

Donna Seager & Suzanne Gray, owners and curators of one of the most prestigious galleries on the west coast, Seager Gray Gallery

A native of New Orleans, Donna Seager began in the art business in 1978. She was the director of Marlborough Gallery in Boston before moving to California in 1989. She continued to work in galleries in the bay area until 2005 when she opened her own gallery. Seager has distinguished herself for her discerning eye and commitment to the arts in her community. She has given lectures on the art of the book at international fairs in Miami and San Francisco. In six years, the gallery became a destination for artists and collectors all over the bay area.

Suzanne Gray, a resident of Mill Valley grew up in upstate New York and studied journalism and art history at Syracuse University and San Jose State. Her lifelong interest and background in art and art history landed her a position at Donna Seager Gallery where she became an integral part of the business and ultimately a valued partner. Gray’s skills extend themselves to professional art consultant services and she has overseen both commercial and residential art programs. Her knowledge of the art market, sophisticated eye, and understanding of art placement have gained her the trust and respect of her clients.
