Women in Photography Moves to Humble Arts Foundation




Women in Photography and Humble Arts Foundation are proud to announce that wipnyc.org — an innovative website founded by artists Amy Elkins and Cara Phillips, which features the work of international female artists — is moving to hafny.org.

The transition could not have come at a better time; WIP will celebrate its third anniversary as well as its 59th exhibition in June. WIP generates exposure for emerging and established female artists through its online exhibitions, panel discussions, and collaborations with museums and galleries. WIP has been fortunate enough to work with Aperture Foundation, LACMA, MoCP, Lesile Tonkonow, Lightwork, and to participate in Young Curators, New Ideas II at P.P.O.W Gallery, among many other collaborations. With support from LTI/Lightside Photographic Services and Kodak, WIP makes an annual $3,000 Individual Project grant and a $1,000 Kodak Materials grant to women photographers. WIP, LTI/Lightside Photographic Services, and Kodak have awarded over $7,500.

Humble Arts Foundation largely inspired WIP’s founding mission and has generously provided promotional, design, technical, and logistical support since WIP’s 2008 inception. Humble Arts Foundation now expands its support by hosting WIP’s monthly exhibitions on its website. WIP is thrilled to join Humble’s excellent program, which includes the biennial exhibition 31 Women in Art Photography, The Collectors Guide to New Art Photography as well as online exhibitions such as group and solo show.

The WIP archives will remain at wipnyc.org so fans and supporters can continue to enjoy its previous exhibitions, including Rhona Bitner, Talia Chetrit, Lisa Kereszi, Laura Letinsky, Birthe Pointek, and Alessandra Sanguinetti. The move to Humble Arts Foundation will allow WIP’s exhibitions to reach a larger audience and will help merge the vision of both organizations.

Thank you for reading and please stay tuned for the next show featuring Pamela Pecchio and more information regarding the 2011 WIP-LTI/Lightside Individual Project Grant.
