The Pageant of the Masters tableaux vivants — “living pictures” — will be devoted to the personification of the source of an artist’s inspiration, with a twist. “In The Muse, we’re trying to dig deeper into the psyche to discover who or what motivates artists to create,” said Pageant Director Diane Challis Davy during a media preview Monday evening.

There is, and always has been, great professional difficulty for women artists. They aren't taken as seriously as men. Their work is undervalued, undershown, underreviewed and underappreciated. Women artists (artists who happen to be women) usually handle this problem in one of two ways, with very little space in between extremes. They may ignore it and paint "male" (i.e., traditional) subject matter, using traditional methods. Or they may choose to address the problem directly, by making their gender the subject matter of the art itself.

Former New Yorker Lisa Aslanian spent 20 years in academia, studying, lecturing on and admiring contemporary art by women until deciding to embark on a new journey by opening The George Gallery in Laguna Beach. The gallery - the only one in the city devoted solely to the work of female artists - held its grand opening last week. Aslanian does not think that women are under-represented in galleries; nor is her gallery filled with strident feminist "message" art. The gallery's women-only concept is simple but also subtle: What makes art by women different from that of men?
