“Where Did All the Girls Go”, series is about the how the female was the center piece for the famous male artists, voiceless and nameless. It is about the evolving female symbol in art, self-identity and her enduring cultural impact. My art concentrates on the fallacy of the beauty myth, and the position of her image portrayed by male artists beginning with the Medieval, to Gothic, to the Greek, Italian Renaissance, the French Impressionists, Surreal, Pop, Expressionistic, to Contemporary works of art. Currently, women artists today use their own body and their own voices in their art work. They tell their stories, they are no longer valued purely for their sexuality.

Tricia Grame, Ph.d. creates two and three dimensional art inspired by prehistoric female symbols. Her passion for the sculpted forms took her to Italy and the Islands of Malta where hundreds of sculptures and etchings have been found.
She grew up in New York City, then moved to California with her husband and son. She continued her studies at the College of the Arts, State Universities, Berkeley, and after two Masters in the Arts received a Ph.D. from the California Institute of Integral Studies. Her dissertation is “Life Into Art; Art Into Life: Transformative Effects of The Female Symbol on a Contemporary Woman Artist”.

It exhibits art that reflects the social and cultural diversity of the Bay Area and international artists. The aim of the gallery is to respect the creative pursuits of the individual and seeks to make such work accessible to a broad audience.
