Georgia Committee NMWA Distributed 20 Artist Relief Fund Grants
Offering Georgia Visual Artists Immediate Financial Assistance

The Georgia Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts has distributed $500 individual visual artist grants to 20 Georgia-based female and female-identifying artists to help with financial hardship due to COVID-19.

“As longtime supporters of Georgia’s women artists through educational programs and the Women to Watch exhibition program, we wanted to offer our help during this time of great adversity for visual female artists,” says Georgia Committee board chair Sara Steinfeld of this inaugural relief fund.

Grants were distributed to practicing women, femme-identifying and non-binary visual artists living in Georgia who are able to demonstrate a commitment to their work and career and who are experiencing immediate financial need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applicants were at least 21 years of age or older, reside in and have worked in the state of Georgia for the last two years and must have created at least one body of work in the past twelve months.

Virtual Studio Tour with Lucha Rodriguez, Women to Watch Artist 2020

Join us for a virtual studio tour with Lucha Rodriguez, Georgia Women to Watch Artist 2020

Monday, August 17, 1pm

Atlanta based artist Lucha Rodriguez creates artwork that mimics intricate patterns found in the inner workings of the human body while exploring ideas of abstraction, replications and separation. She is predominantly known for her site-specific paper installations, but has also explored a variety of media including copper, textiles, paint, plexiglass and sound. Her series of knife drawings, made by shallow cuts into the surface of the paper, play with light and color and represent the union between precision and intuition: organic and geometric; simplicity and complexity.

Rodriguez was born in Caracas, Venezuela. she received her bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta and her master of fine arts degree in printmaking at Savannah college of Art and Design. Her work is included in the High Museum of Art Atlanta’s modern and contemporary art collection in addition to various private institutions and collections.
