Girl Power with Gallerist Myrtis Bedolla

WHAT: The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) monthly talk show connects viewers to the museum and special guests who consider topics relevant to our world and offer insight into collaborations that the museum is fostering while the building is closed.

Joining in this episode is Myrtis Bedolla, the owner and founding director of Galerie Myrtis, an emerging blue-chip gallery and art advisory specializing in 20th- and 21st-century American art with a focus on work by African American artists. Established in 2006, the gallery aims to raise awareness of artists for their contributions in portraying our cultural, social, historical and political landscapes and to recognize art movements that paved the way for freedom of artistic expression. Bedolla recently gained national press in the New York Times article “Black Gallerists Press Forward Despite a Market That Holds Them Back” and wrote “Why My Blackness is Not a Threat to your Whiteness” for Cultured Magazine. Bedolla holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Maryland, University College, and received her curatorial training at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland.
