History has shownWomen artists have been the subject of varying degrees of critical attention and neglect.

In todays social and economicclimate women, thanks to the assistance of the “Me Too” movement, supporting the rights of women all over the world and the campaigne “You are not alone”. Have given women artists a voice!


This vibrant group of maturefemale artists have come together tocreate an exhibition of their own personal journeys in creating a collection ofself portrait works, medium acrylic on canvas.
