About GAGA

I founded The Gentileschi Aegis Gallery Association in 2010. GAGA's 501(c)(3) mission is to 

serve south Texas women artists through exhibition, promotion and educational opportunities. To date,the organization has grown to over 60 members.


The organization's strange,awkward name is intentional and is a combination of two powerful women's. Artemsia Gentileschi is recognized as the first woman artist in the predominantly all-male,art canon. Aegis is the name given to the goddess Athena's breastplate.

I wears many hats, serving as president of GAGA. Her favorites are finding and curating exhibition opportunities for my members.

Thank you.
