ATLANTA, GA.- Alan Avery Art Company will celebrate their 30th anniversary with the exhibition The Glass Ceiling Shattered, 30 Years - 3 Great American Women Artists, featuring work from Louise Nevelson, Helen Frankenthaler and Kara Walker. The exhibition opened to the public December 3, 2011. The exhibition continues through Friday, February 10, 2012.

For the past three decades as an art dealer, Alan Avery has strived to bring a different voice and a new perspective to Atlanta's collecting audience by bringing artists and great works to a city that may otherwise not be seen on southern soil. To celebrate Alan Avery Art Company's landmark 30th anniversary, Alan wanted something that had not been done before, something that would not only speak about who he is as a dealer, but also offer the city an opportunity to learn, grow and expand their knowledge in the world of art and collecting great works of art.

Throughout history, not only in the arts, the contributions of women have been over-looked. In the 20th century this perception began to change. With the women's movement in the late 1960s and early 70s female artists garnered further acceptance and critical praise from the art world and general public. Associations like the Woman's Caucus for Art provided venues for their art, giving them the visibility that has long been denied them.

The Glass Ceiling Shattered, 30 Years - 3 Great American Women Artists presents the work of Louise Nevelson, Helen Frankenthaler and Kara Walker. Each of these women is highly recognized in their own right, as well as having played a significant role within the history of art, and as a female artist. Louise Nevelson, an American sculptor and printmaker, and Helen Frankenthaler, an American Abstract Expressionist, helped pave the way for women in the arts. Working to move beyond the norm in their own fields, these two women created work that no other artists were making. Kara Walker, an American artist, known for her large-scale tableaux of cut paper silhouettes takes her place among significant women artists, and as one who is creating unique and powerful work. Walker's work adds to the cultural dialogue by examining gender, sexuality and racially charged issues.
