About

Purpose

We started Femme Cartel in 2011 to promote emerging female artists and curate badass contemporary art shows. To date, we have promoted 150+ female artists and hosted more than 10 rip-roarin’ contemporary art shows. (Sign up to hear about the latest news and artist opportunities.)

Leaders

Emily “Femily” Howe, a PR powerhouse and art lover, founded Femme Cartel in 2011. Shortly thereafter, creative tastemaker/social media guru/curator Christina Bohn began co-producing Femme Cartel.
