Last month, the Lady Minimalists Tea Society artist collective exhibited at the international art fair, ART Santa Fe. This was the debut exhibition for our group. Six other women artists and I belong to the collective, and we meet once a month to talk about our work and discuss exhibition opportunities.  It's a great group of women, and we all respect and admire each others' work. Minimalism functions as a conceptual and aesthetic starting point for some in the group and as a point of reaction for others. Each artist has adapted the minimalist aesthetic differently, yet we retain a shared sense of pared down processes, materials and/or color.  Our booth at ART Santa Fe was very well received, and we got a lot of exposure and critical interest. I am very proud to show with this group of extraordinary women: Shaun Gilmore, Dara Mark, Paula Roland, Danielle Shelley, Signe Stuart, and Janice Wall.
