The Morrison Hotel Gallery opened its The Art of Women exhibit last night, honoring some of the most powerful women musicians and photographers, from the last several decades.

The Sunset Marquis Hotel played host to such legendary artists like Nancy Wilson of Heart, and celebrity photographer and gallery co-owner Timothy White who was the co-host for the evening.

“The Art of Women is perfectly timed when even unbelievably in our modern-day, women’s freedoms are once again being called into question. The power, insights, and voices that women bring into the world are an absolute mirror of who we all are in our human family.” Saysokaancy Wilson of Heart about the exhibit.

Among the VIPs, friends and fans that attended the party last night were gallery co-owner and celebrated photographer Henry Diltz, Julian Lennon, who is celebrating the release of his new children’s book Touch The Earth, the cast of American Pickers, actor Clifton Collins Jr and many others.

The Art of Women exhibit includes images of Janis Joplin, Billy Holiday, Tina Turner, Blondie to name just a few, as well as the self-portraits Steve Nicks took that have been called the first “selfies.” Some of the photographers whose work will be featured are Lynn Goldsmith, Lisa Law, Autumn de Wilde, Timothy White, Henry Diltz, Bob Gruen, and other greats who are represented by the gallery. The show will be up from April 21st until April 30th.
