…by kickass artists who generally happen to be female.
While the quality of the art always comes first, Femme Cartel highlights female artists front and center.
In June 2011, Femme Cartel formed to celebrate female artists, diversity, and contemporary art. “In the mainstream art world, male artists are given a disproportionate share of the press attention, financial backing, and art shows,” explains Emily “Femily” Howe, the founder and co-curator, “we’re helping to change that.” Since their beginning, Femme Cartel has highlighted the work of over 150 female artists of all Colors (plus youth and emerging artists as well as a few male artists with strong, relevant work).
"We just plain LOVE connecting our artists with gorgeous urban art spaces, visionary curators, curious art journalists, and our devoted community of art buyers."
-Femily & Christina, directors of Femme Cartel
