The F Word

View the work of Whimsical artist Ollie Sigleton, and many other artists, at "The F Word: Feminist Art of the 21st Century."



Ollie is a self-taught visual artist who wants to go beyond creating art to helping people see how art can enhance their lives. She feels especially at home with mixed media and collage. Her collages are grounded in narratives from her life experiences and explore traditional and cutting edge social and political themes using many kinds of papers, photographic imagery, transfer images, paints and printmaking techniques. Her artwear is influenced by her love of mixed media and collage. As an artist, Ollie savors the process, which takes precedence over any planned end.

The Fall Whimsical Women Sale was wonderful!

Maybe 'wonderful' is a little bit too much alliteration, but it is the only word that comes to my mind at the moment! In just the few hours of the Fall 2011 Whimsical Women show 92 artists sold almost 3,500 pieces of art- really wonderful news. And I can hardly wait for our next show!
I hope all of you artists and all you whimsical art lovers have a joyous and peaceful holiday season. Hugs all around!
