Debra Lott is well known for her large paintings of women. They’re not portraits but on the multitude of experiences related to being female. Her new body of work is a follow-up to her 2018 series that focused on the #MeToo movement. “This series of paintings illustrates the beauty, strength and resiliency of women while expressing empowerment and perseverance by uniting together,” she said. Lott asked seven guest artists to show with her, all using art to stand together in support of women: Britany Baker, Heather Brunetti, Sandra Charles, Bob Lockhart, Mike McCarthy, Chip Norton and Karen Terhune.
