When women come together to build each other up, there's a magic that happens. We start to realize we are not alone in our dreams, our goals or even our fears. And then we begin to believe in ourselves a little more. We add a few layers of confidence. We start making plans to build our dreams, we take actual steps to reach our goals and we begin to believe that we can make a difference. This is what happened when women from around Muskoka gathered at the YWCA in Bracebridge to finalize plans for our spring show at The Chapel Gallery in Bracebridge, ON, last Friday, January 18th.
22 sculptures, photographers, jewelers, painters, musicians, printers, and textile makers are joining to celebrate what it means to be a female artist. With the theme "Through Her Eyes, In Her Hands", we honour our passion for art, and the freedom we embrace being a woman that is able to express herself artistically and freely in our day and age.
Each of these women holds a story. Her story is similar to yours, but different. Join me as we prepare for the show, creating with our hands what our hearts are whispering. I will be interviewing several artists from the show and bringing their stories and artwork to you in my newsletter. Sign up below so you don't miss the journey!
