For over a century, the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA) has provided essential training for many of Northern Ohio’s most vibrant and productive women artists. Their artistic work encompassed a wide range of media: oil and watercolor, sculpture, illustration and design, silversmithing and jewelry-making, enameling, ceramics and textiles. This exhibition brings to light the achievements of a group CIA’s women graduates and instructors, including Mildred Watkins (1901), Florence Wilcox (1915), Wilhelmina Stephan (1905), Doris Hall (1928), Thelma Frazier (1929), Edris Eckhart (1931) and Leza McVey (1931), Shirley Aley Campbell (1947 Agnes Gund Scholarship) and Anna Arnold (1983). Many of the women had successful careers as designers and illustrators; some supported themselves as art teachers while others managed their own art galleries and studios. Curiously, while the women were in many regards as successful as their male counterparts, undeservingly they are today least well-known.
