See an Artistic Interpretation of the Rainbow During This Exhibit Featuring Women Artists

The Nave Museum is proud to present The Exquisite Rainbow Corpse Redux, an exhibit featuring works from over 80 female artists who are members of the Gentileschi Aegis Gallery Association (GAGA). This Association, which was formed in 2010, was founded to help promote, educate and advance women artists in South Texas. Check out these one-of-a-kind works on display Saturday, December 28th!

Each participating member artist has chosen color from a color palette and created two 12x12-inch canvases that feature the color chosen. The art then will be hung around the front gallery of the Nave Museum based on the gradient rainbow sequence of ROYGBIV colors and Surrealist invention. The back gallery will feature works from sixteen of the artists that were chosen because of their extra efforts within the Association.

GAGA first created an exhibit like this in 2014 to celebrate its 5-year milestone. The Exhibits Committee of the Nave Museum reached out to them about two years ago to see if they would be interested in recreating The Exquisite Rainbow Corpse for the Nave Museum, and they happily agreed. The pieces in this exhibit are all newly created. Most of the artwork will be for sale.

GAGA’s name comes from Artemisia Gentileschi, a painter from the 1600s and the first recognized woman in the all-male artist canon. She painted in the style of Caravaggio, developing beautiful narrative paintings, full of light, movement, and energy. During the span of her stellar career, Gentileschi enjoyed a successful court following throughout Europe – a feat unheard of for a woman of that time.

The exhibit runs through Sunday, January 5, 2020. Admission is always free, but donations are gladly accepted to help the museum continue its mission of bringing fine art to the Crossroads. For more information about the exhibit and the Nave Museum, visit www.navemuseum.com.
