Goddesses and Warriors Show

Published on November 17, 2020

ARC Living Artist Edi Matsumoto is having a solo exhibition of her work at the Pacific Grove Art Center, 568 Lighthouse Ave, Pacific Grove, CA from November 5 - December 17, 2020. In her exhibition, “Goddesses and Warriors”, the artist marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Constitutional amendment in the U.S. allowing women to vote. This collection of works was created as a tribute to the first brave and passionate women who challenged what was thought to be prohibited, impossible, or inaccessible. Matsumoto has selected models from diverse backgrounds, including the United States,  Japan, South Pacific, Indonesia, and other areas. Each painting is accompanied by a haiku created by the artist in conjunction with her poet friend.

"I hope these figures will be the reminders of our inner goodness, beauty, strength, wisdom, and life force."   - Edi Matsumoto
