TFAP@TEN, a group exhibition honoring the 10th anniversary of The Feminist Art Project (TFAP), is on display now through April 8 in the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series Galleries at Douglass Library, Rutgers University–New Brunswick. On Thursday, March 3 at Douglass Library, there will be an artists’ discussion moderated by Midori Yoshimoto starting at 5 p.m. with a TFAP 10th Anniversary Celebration to follow at 6 p.m.

TFAP@TEN features the works of six artists in the TFAP Regional New Jersey Chapter. Collectively, these artists’ works intertwine visceral aspects of the natural world and the human condition while having a strong focus on formal practice and narratives. Jaz Graf’s drawings and So Yoon Lym’s works on paper focus on patterns and textures inspired by animals, organic materials, and the human body. Found and used materials infiltrate the sculptural works of both Adrienne Wheeler and Babs Reingold. Anonda Bell’s site-specific installations and Nancy Cohen’s mixed media works encompass space with figurative and organic forms that are both eerie and comforting. To accompany the exhibition, the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities (CWAH) will publish a comprehensive free online catalog with essay by Midori Yoshimoto, associate professor of art history and director of the Visual Arts Gallery at New Jersey City University.

The Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series is a program of the CWAH in partnership with Rutgers University Libraries. It was founded in 1971 by renowned artist and Rutgers Graduate Joan Snyder and is the oldest continuously running exhibition venue for contemporary women visual artists in the United States. A program of the CWAH established in 2006, The Feminist Art Project is an international collaborative initiative advancing the aesthetic and intellectual contributions of women in the visual arts.

The exhibition and event are free and open to public. Please RSVP for the event to womenart@rci.rutgers.edu. For more information about the exhibition, event, and parking, visit the CWAH website.
