International Women Celebrate!
24" x 24" Oil on wrapped canvas
I am thrilled to be a part of the upcoming show International Women Celebrate! at the AyrSpace Gallery in Ayr, Ontario, Canada. The exhibit celebrates the centenary of International Women's Day and shows the work of over 100 women from around the world. I painted "Circle Of Friends" in early December and am packing it up this week for shipping.
When thinking about what to paint for this event I kept thinking about women throughout history and women around the globe sharing stories, sharing their lives, sharing tea. How this sharing often is, or was, around a table, around a fire, in a sewing circle, in a group, but, with a circle of friends. The show opens in early March and lasts five weeks. If you're going to be in Ayr, Ontario I hope you'll attend. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the paintings will go to orphans in Haiti.
