Honoring the Women of
Stanek Gallery

Stanek Gallery is participating in (re)FOCUS: Philadelphia Focuses on Women in the Visual Arts, a citywide festival recognizing women artists. Stanek Gallery recognizes the critical role of women in the arts and is celebrating their creative contributions with this virtual exhibition which culminates in a buyers' event on May 18th. This exhibition has also been featured in "(re)FOCUS: Then and Now" which shines a light on women in art and Feminist Art from their first core show in 1974 as well as contemporary women artists.

Stanek Gallery is a women-owned, all-women-run gallery in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia where over 50% of represented artists are also women. Our innovative exhibition programs demonstrate how distinctive styles, content, and genres can coexist in the same room with harmony and intrigue. At Stanek Gallery, we do not dictate what the artist creates, and we do not discriminate. The highly selective curation process prioritizes quality of content, craft, and creativity above all else, so it is no surprise that women make up more than half of our exhibiting artists.


Our represented women artists are Tamie Beldue, Jacqueline Boyd, Deborah Fine, Barbara Fisher, Carson Fox, Stanka Kordic, Kathy Loev Putnam, Nicole Michaud, Mary Nomecos, Rachel Romano, Leona Shanks, Mary Spinelli, Katherine Stanek, Louise Strawbridge, Christina Weaver, and Treacy Ziegler. This exhibition also includes work by guest artists Donna Usher and Donna Quinn as well as gallery assistant Isabella Del Signore and manager Jennifer Bedford.
