FOGUE™ STUDIOS & GALLERY hosts the opening reception for narrative artist Jane Hickey Caminos’ thought provoking series of activist paintings: “On Women Bound”. This timely exhibition commences a week before the 2020 Seattle Women’s March and continues through February 29, 2020.E
“The intent of ‘On Women Bound’ is to increase awareness of crimes against the female gender, be they a culture away or an incidence of domestic violence in a nearby couple’s kitchen. I understand that as an artist, I have a responsibility to use my gift to help these millions of traumatized women. I want the paintings to generate a dialogue that will be carried from the exhibition out to others.”- Caminos
Caminos grew up in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey and received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1969. She worked in the book publishing trade in Boston and New York as an illustrator, art director, and in management before establishing an independent design and illustration studio.
