Mission: We at Pen and Brush strongly support the premise that art and literature are vital aspects of the human experience. We also believe that art and literature created by women deserves to be recognized and valued on its merit. We recognize that gender-based inequality in the arts has a much larger historic societal context, but we also recognize that, by concentrating our resources within our sphere of influence, Pen and Brush has the greatest chance of effecting real change for women in the arts.

Beatrice Sacacciaโ€™s process of layering various media and tensions molds characters into being- under their fabric cloaks which conceal the self - essentially turning them into universal โ€œplayersโ€ stuck in the space of repetitious insanity on the stage of everyday life. The artist describes the figures in her work saying: โ€œMy characters are fluid beings that often remain genderless, faceless, and ageless with only their most genuine vulnerabilities visible.โ€

Artist Hannah Layden is featured in Pen + Brush's upcoming exhibition ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜•๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ, opening this Thursday January 9, 2020 6-8pm. Layden is a New York based artist who has exhibited work throughout the United States. Her work to date is a rawโ€”and sometimes gut wrenchingโ€”journey into what it means to be a disabled woman occupying an erratic and inherited Other human body.

Pen + Brush is pleased to present our first exhibition of 2020, The Now, featuring artists Hannah Layden, Felicita Maynard, Rowan Renee, and Beatrice Scaccia. Works included in this exhibition confront and intervene with contemporary societal understanding of what it means to be human, woman, queer, disabled, and finally, what it means to be Other. Exactly who is Other? Can we find a shared empathy, a collective understanding, an intimate rather than superficial commonality?

Our Story

For 125 years Pen + Brush has been dedicated to promoting the work of women in the literary and visual arts. Pen + Brush provides a platform to showcase the work of professional emerging and mid-career female artists and writers to a broader audience with the ultimate goal of effecting real change within the marketplace. At Pen + Brush, we believe that art and literature created by women deserves to be recognized and valued on its merit โ€“ not judged by the gender of the maker.

Pen and Brush provides a platform to showcase the work of female artists and writers to a broader audience with the ultimate goal of effecting real change within the marketplace. We encourage and mentor emerging professionals and aim to expose the stereotypes and misconceptions that perpetuate gender-based exclusion, lack of recognition and the devaluation of skill that is still experienced by women in the arts.

We at Pen and Brush strongly support the premise that art and literature are vital aspects of the human experience. We also believe that art and literature created by women deserves to be recognized and valued on its merit. We recognize that gender-based inequality in the arts has a much larger historic societal context, but we also recognize that, by concentrating our resources within our sphere of influence, Pen and Brush has the greatest chance of effecting real change for women in the arts by advocating for the merit of their work through our platform while moving them forward into their professional fields.
