I finally made it over to PAFA's Female Gaze show.  If you haven't heard about it, it showcases the collection of a woman, Linda Lee Alter, who recently gave PAFA her collection which was all women's work.  It is an enormous show, and I think that a lot of people would find something of interest to them.  The work is pretty diverse.  The pieces above were a few of my personal favorites.  I was surprised to realize I was most engaged by pieces that were not paintings, although I did really like a large Yvonne Jacquette triptych and a few Sarah Mcceneaney pieces but could not get a decent photo.  Its up until April and worth a browse if you are in the area.
