This exhibit will highlight this disparity that exists between male and female artists in Utah where 60% of the artists are female but on average 70% of the artists exhibited are male. This will give Utah women artists an opportunity to share what it is like to be a woman living in Utah today. Each artist will provide a piece that discusses her view of her role as a woman. With a nod to the contemporary women's movement, each artist will include something pink in her work.

The Red Dirt Girls do get their hands dirty. They have grit. Determination. Skills.
As a group, they want to celebrate women’s challenges and tragedies in a way that is imbued with hope. They feel women have an important role in shaping the attitudes of those around them, and there is a great need for uplifting and positive messages. The Red Dirt Girls have experienced loneliness, divorce, loss of their homes, friends that were untrue, life’s constant challenges and surprises—but have emerged from these daunting experiences with optimism and humor intact. They have stories to tell, examples of great women to celebrate, and canvases full of color and magic.
