March is Women’s History Month. The Pride Center at Equality Park is pleased to present the fourth Annual Women in History Art Show. This year’s theme is “Women on the Move.”
“We felt ‘Movement’ was a great word to really allow for a variety of unique creative expressions. It could be a political movement, a musical movement that features a woman that's made movement in history; it could be a literal movement, etc… There's so much you could do with that word. Our goal is to provide work that viewers can stand in front of and examine for quite some time and question. Our artists are all in attendance at the event so questions and open discussions are encouraged,” said Judissa Atkinson, co-owner of Closet Talk.
But this event is about much more than art.
“The purpose of this event is awareness. We are looking to commemorate Women's History Month every year by providing an event that brings our community together to celebrate where we came from and where we are going as women. We are very thankful to the Pride Center [at Equality Park] for hosting this art show and supporting not only our local artists but our community,” Atkinson said.
The work of 13 artists will be displayed. Those works will be anything from photography to painting to mixed media. The wide variety of artists helps to boost interest in the show each year.
“We try to get feedback from the artists and the people that come through the art show and the buyers. Most of them love what we are doing and always want to see more art,” says photographer Angie Sowers, who’s also one of Closet Talk’s curators.
The show runs for the entire month of March at The Pride Center at Equality Park. It’s located at 2040 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors, 33305.
