Cal Poly Pomona featured three art galleries as part of “Feminine Wisdom,” a showcase to celebrate Women’s History Month on Saturday. The exhibits were a depiction of women through the eyes, experiences and emotions of women.

The main gallery is at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center in the Pomona Arts Colony.  The second location is at the main branch of the Pomona Central Library, in Pomona, and the third location is at the Bronco Exhibit Gallery at Cal Poly.

Local artists did most of the sculptures, statues and paintings submitted.  A former University of La Verne art professor, Dee Marcellus Cole, did a colorful piece called “Feathers and Firecracker Madness”.

The show was vibrant and upbeat. 

“It’s nice to see the diversity and quality of the art,” Cole said.  “This show exhibits more progress and less pity.”

Cole was the only artist present among the small gathering last weekend.  The artists will have their chance to speak at the exhibit at 3 p.m. on March 25, at the Downtown Center. 

Nearly all of the artwork was accompanied by an artist description.  Some artists described the art piece; others explained their inspirations.

Sandra Crowley Kramer constructed a piece in honor of Susan B. Anthony, called “Susan B. Anthony’s Sisters.”  It was made to show an eternal gratefulness for Anthony and her struggles to begin the women’s movement. 

Other artists described their work as a result of inspiration by their family, friends, even their favorite vacation spot.  Cole’s work was inspired by her travels to Central America. 

Regine Verougstraete wrote: “My drawings are a journey toward myself.”  She drew to inspire thought and vision within herself.

“This is a great place to see inspiring art work,” said Cybele Garcia, the Downtown Center coordinator.  “There is so much artwork that we had to open three galleries, but it is all worth visiting.” 

There will be a second reception at 6 p.m. on April 8 at the Cal Poly Downtown Center. 

The exhibits will run through April 22.  The reception and exhibits are free and open to the public.
