The Scroll

Stacey AS Pritchard

I wanted something to happen around the Eating Our Fathers exhibit at Chashama Space to Create, Matawan, NJ, that would speak to how we kept finding ourselves back to female artists that we had all discovered along the way that had quietly and loudly inspired us all. The morning I went to install the show I dug around my studio for a large paper to use to list these women. When I stumbled across the roll of rice paper and I was immediately reminded of Carolee Schneeman’s manifesto. The list has grown… at the opening, through the internet, at the artist salon and I consider it still open. If you know of someone that should be added please contact me to let me know at

(Understand that when I do say “us all” I am including all those artists that were interested but unable to produce a piece for the show and all the people that interacted with the show and walked away with fresh conversations.)

These are only a few pictures of those that wrote names to consider.

These are the names as added to the scroll with a link to begin your investigation of each artist. (well… as I get it completed… thank you for all patience, cuz it is quite a list.)
