‘Head’s Up: The Many Hats Women Wear” also known as “The Hat Show” is a themed art exhibition by the Women’s Caucus for Art’s NH Chapter (WCA/NH). “Head’s Up” opens with an Artists’ Reception on Saturday, April 1 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Twiggs Gallery located at 254 King Street in Boscawen. The exhibit runs through May 27.

Building on the success previous clothing themed exhibitions, “Busting Out: Powerful Women” (aka “The Bra Show”) and “Kick-Start” (aka “The Shoe Show”), WCA/NH and Twiggs Gallery have teamed up once again to mount a feminist art exhibition using hats as the jumping off point for inspiration. The hat theme is expressed in a wide variety of works that include paintings, sculptures, one-of-a kind artist books, small installations, photography, and mixed media pieces. Some themes addressed in the work are; nature/Mother Nature, women’s work, mothering, family, marriage, self-image, agency and power.

Participating artists are Lisa Almeida, Rosanne Beaurivage, Judith Cassell, Donna Catanzaro, Nicki French, Suzan Gannett, Linda Greenwood, Cristina Hajosy, Rebecca Hastings, Elizabeth Hill, Eva Kjellberg, Lisa Laughy, Kathleen Lovett, Annette Mitchell, Laura Morrison, Emily Preston, Susan Rock, Adele Sanborn, Cilla Sheehan, Gail Smuda, and Cassandra Tedone.

WCA/NH is part of a national organization that promotes the advancement of women in the visual arts through educational programs, networking and exhibition opportunities.
