Opposition only strengthens the resolute.
Time makes the resolute more persistent.

To be resolute is to feel the force of an idea and to remain dedicated despite what crumbles and grows around it. Dedication is measured by painstaking increments of effort over sustained periods. The resolute take every chance to memorialize and preserve each small gain, to perpetuate their own survival.

In this first month of 2023, ARC kicks off its 50th year with a celebration of the spirit of determination that got us here. We are, and have been for 50 years, a women’s cooperative not-for-profit art gallery run by artists themselves. Our time, money, sweat, organization and talents have kept the doors open for 5 decades. Through sustained work and dedication, ARC will continue to be a community anchor for artists sidelined by the traditional art world system.

Resolute features artwork by the current members of ARC who work daily together to run the gallery. Each piece interprets what it means to be resolute in the here and now, with the deepest respect for all of the brilliant women artists who came before us.
