Re: “West Oakland's New All-Female Art Collective

This is all very great for young, female graduates and I'm happy for them. However, let me speak up for the older, mature female artists who did not have the benefit of today's insights and novel attitudes towards female art/artists. What about those of us who somehow navigated a tougher system several years ago but yet manage to hang on to our art practice? What about those of us who somehow manage to balance motherhood and their art? Who somehow manage to work for one's basic survival needs (and their family's) and still do their art? Who have had to keep a day job and still do their art? Whose art have never been significantly recognized or validated by the Art World and yet still keep going? Is today's inclusivity focused only on the young and upcoming? Is the concept of doing art minus the driving ambition of attaining rock star status such a dismal place to be?
