Motivated by the dearth of women’s representation in the art world, and in homage to the artists who inspire her, Rebecca Campbell in fall 2015 began her project You are Here, which features a series of portraits of women artists working in Los Angeles. Fighting against misogyny, Campbell’s work celebrates women’s “strength, intelligence, courage, humor and beauty.”
Campbell was born and raised in Salt Lake City, the youngest of seven children. She earned her BFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art and her MFA from UCLA, graduating in 2001. In addition to California, Campbell’s paintings have been exhibited across the United States and overseas in Madrid, Spain, and Basel, Switzerland.
Admission is free. This exhibit was made possible with support from L.A. Louver Gallery in Venice, California.
The Kwan Fong Gallery, located in Soiland Humanities Center, is open to the public 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
