EmpowerHer Exhibit Ends Friday

The EmpowerHer -- Celerating Women in the Arts exhibit held a powerful and history making Artist Talk Saturday. The exhibit features over 60 women artists working in various mediums including sculpture, paints, jewelry, photography, collage and fiber. Most of the artists were present for the Artist Talk. After a brief lecture by quilt historian Dr. Amalia K. Amaki about historical local women artists, each artists took a moment to introduce herself and her work.

I had an opportunity to view the exhibit again without the crown of opening night and with new insight after meeting many of the artists and listening to Curator Tisha Smith explain the curatorial process, I am especially proud that my quilt Sharing Sisterhood is framed by the photographs of renowned photographer Sue Ross. Her photographs depict Maya Angelo, Coretta Scott King and Betty Shabazz, among others. I will always treasure the picture I took of the installation.


It was a glorious day or sisterhood and creativity. You have until Friday to see it at the Emma Darnell Aviation Museum and Conference Center in Atlanta. It is not to be missed! Below is a gallery that captures some of the highlights of the exhibit.
