Please join us on Zoom (link below) as we welcome Dallas artist Valerie Guth Boyd! Valerie will share her book, her portraits, her process, and her total immersion into each woman's life. We welcome you to come on the journey! 

Valerie Boyd set a goal: “paint the portraits of 50 women before I turned 50. Now she has plenty of portraits and a self-published book, too. She met her goal of 50 well before her 50th birthday and continued until she surpassed 100 works that commemorate activists, artists, educators, humanitarians, scientists, politicians, actors, athletes, and leaders in an array of fields.The women in Boyd's portraits can be described as having “engaged in seemingly impossible activities and having achieved success in a manner that renders all onlookers completely awestruck.”

Some of her favorite portraits are— Barbara Jordan, Amelia Earhart, Mary Oliver, RBG, Barbara McClintock, Marie Curie, Lucille Ball, Lee Krasner, Hillary Clinton, and Julia Child — but she particularly enjoy when viewers share the portraits they like best. 

Her beautiful self published book, Badass Women, packages the portraits with quotes and bibliographical information and is dedicated to her daughter, Grace. Valerie says: “I wanted to celebrate the contributions of these women and inspire all of us to acknowledge the badass women in our lives,” she said. “I envisioned my daughter’s generation getting to know their foremothers.

Valerie Guth Boyd grew up in Missoula, Montana: where she drew creative inspiration from the mountains and rivers. Before moving to Dallas in 2013, Boyd lived in a variety of locations, including Atlanta, Chicago, Avon (CT), Edmond (OK), and then for the longest stint, thirteen years in Minneapolis (MN). Boyd's art is currently being exhibited at The Episcopal School of Dallas and is the featured Local Artist for Spring 2021.
