Fri 3/8 @ 5-8PM
March 8 is International Women’s Day, and Bonfoey Gallery downtown is celebrating in the most appropriate way: it’s opening its new show, Engaging Women, which features the work of 11 artists it represents from around this region, most of whom will be familiar to local art lovers. They work in a variety of media, with an emphasis on painting, with styles ranging from abstraction to detailed representation, including Cathie Bleck’s intricate drawings showing nature and animals in a heightened manner and Linda Butler’s striking black & white photography taken around the world.
“Engaging Women is about the voices of women and the importance of seeing through other perspectives,” says the gallery.
Other artists include Leslye Discont Arian, Harriet Moore Ballard, Judy Barie, Ruth Bercaw, Susan Danko, Marilyn Farinacci, Pam Gilliland, Kathleen Hammett and Ashley Sullivan. The opening reception is free and open to all. The show remains on view through Sat 4/27.
