Women’s Lives: Art by Canterbury Women 1993

1 July – 15 August 1993

As an interesting contrast to the historically based exhibition, Women's Lives is an invited show of approximately seventy Canterbury women artists who are currently living and working in the region. Women's Lives has invited a group of women from a variety of different backgrounds, cultures, techniques and mediums to submit a work on paper which interprets the theme of 'Women's Lives' in Canterbury in 1993.

Despite the huge diversity of media in the exhibition, which will include painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, and fibre artists, all works submitted to the Women's Lives exhibition will be framed and hung in an identical way. When the exhibition closes the works will be gifted to the gallery to form an independent archive and record of the Suffrage Centennial. Women's Lives is also sponsored by Trust Bank Canterbury and the 1993 Suffrage Centennial Trust, Whakatu Wahine.
