The Feminist Image Group was formed in 2009. FIG is a coalition of San
Diego visual artists who meet to discuss art, see exhibitions, and support one
another in our careers. We work across many media, including drawing, painting,
photography, sculpture, installation, digital media and performance. The group
has had exhibitions at San Diego Mesa College, Art Produce Gallery, Hyde
Gallery at Grossmont College, Art San Diego Artfair, and has an upcoming
exhibition at the Women’s Museum of California.
“Krogen Amerika”is the name of a Swedish printmaking
group in the region of Östergötland in Sweden. The group works out
of a a red wooden house from 1704 in the very center of the Swedish city of
Linköping. During the years, it has functioned as a private
home, a local pub, and a meeting place for emigrants to America (hence the name
of the house, “Krogen Amerika”). Now it is a fully functional printmaking studio and art
gallery. This artist-run gallery and studio space is partly funded by the city
of Linköping. About 20 artists work here, and also together manage
the space, with the support from the local community. The gallery exhibits
artists from all over Sweden. Krogen America has exhibited as a group at Norrköpings
Museum, Östergötlands Museum,
the Palo Alto City Hall, Odense Konsthall Danmark, Berlin Kunstfactor.
