'Beauty Fierce as Stars*, Groundbreaking Women Painters' at Mythos Gallery
From the sidewalk, Mythos Gallery looks like just another non-descript storefront off busy Shadduck Avenue in Berkeley. But if the viewer takes a second look, he (or she) will see one of the most powerful – if smallest – exhibitions of women artists from the 1950’s through today. The exhibition at Mythos Gallery is the first of two to showcase women painters who arose out of the Abstract Expressionist and Figurative artistic movements of the 1950's.
