MyLove For You is a Stampede of Horses is a great blog, looking at street art and emerging artists, DIY culture etc. It is written by a women, and makes a point of championing women artists too. It was good to read this interview, where she says..

Q:Popularization of female artists is still lacking, and having a voice in the scene is extremely important. What lady artists do you have your eye on these days and how do you feel the art scene, specifically in SF, can benefit from a female perspective?

A: Oh gosh. Man, I have a lot to say about this. But where to begin? The women artists I have my eye on right now are, and there are a lot so I will keep it soley to SF/Bay area artists: Hilary Pecis, Monica Canilao, Jamie Vasta, Tiffany Bozic, Lisa Congdon, Laurel Roth, Alexis MacKenzie, Lauren DiCioccio, Catherine Ryan, Tara Lisa Foley, Gina Tuzzi, Ehren Reed, Serena Cole, Michelle Blade to name just a few!

As in terms of the benefits a female perspective can bring to the art scene here in SF? It’s still such a boy’s club. It would be nice to see more than two or three female artists on a group show roster of 20+. There is such talent here by way of female artists. I think above all a female perspective can bring some much needed balance.
