About

B*tch Fest is a collaborative vision for exhibition of female art conceived by Terri Lloyd and Monica Marsh, founders of The Haggus Society.

During a conversation last year (2010), Monica and Terri came to the realization that older women are invisible in society, but more specifically in the arts. Even a television show makes reference to the invisibility of people over 40. 

Monica and Terri have discussed and surveyed the issues that postpone or delay women's art careers. There were also the issues of ageism in a youth oriented society (and industry), and the idea that art by women must fit a hygienic mold. Along with these challenges is that there is little to no institutional support for the older female artist.

We seek to change that and the language of the landscape.

Not everyone has a linear art career trajectory. Life happens. Right?

Many women are re-igniting their careers during these highly inflammatory and changing times, and yet we remain under-served.

We have become invisible regardless of our exceptional talent.

We want something, someplace specifically for women like us– multifaceted older women who play hard and work hard; women who are activists, thinkers, and (creative) risk takers; women who get it --AND get what we’re about.

We continue to connect daily with older female artists who push the envelope, don’t conform to polite society or social norms. Women who refuse to compromise, who refuse to compete, and dare to do things their own way.

Our message is resonating with women, young and old, well behaved and not so well behaved.  

B*tch Fest is for artists (30-ish and older) who share a vision of empowerment through the arts by challenging social perceptions about age and gender.

Help give voice to a vibrant demographic that is being ignored.

We are not invisible.
