Editorial Reviews


A fascinating potpourri of essays ranging from a succinct account of how to start your own excellent museum to art criticism and blogging, from past history of the WCA to the return of the nude in recent art. Everyone will find something valuable in this collection, to which many of the smartest minds writing about women and art have contributed. --Ann Sutherland Harris, Professor of the History of Art and Architecture, University of Pittsburgh, First President of the Women s Caucus for Art (WCA)

BLAZE is a work of love and commitment that chronicles the breadth and depth of American feminist creative practice across generations, as it speculates on the position of women in society and manifests in the making of art. --Carol Becker, Carol Becker, Dean of the School of the Arts, Columbia University
