all WOMEN: Your Full and Wonderful Self

all WOMEN Exhibition - March 1-31, 2022

March 1 - 31, 2022

Since 1987, the United States has celebrated Women’s History Month in March to coincide with International Women’s Day (March 8th), which was first adopted by the United Nations in 1977. This annual event honors the often-overlooked contributions of women to society, culture, and history.

We embrace this yearly tradition with an exhibit increasing the visibility of women artists across the country. This year, we are pleased to present the work of Amber Marie Hunt, Rachel A. Jameton, Nishiki Sugawara-Beda, Cheyanne Valera, and Naomi S. Velasquez. Through a variety of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture, these women share their unique experiences
and perspectives.
