In celebration of Women's History Month and International Women's Day, Drinking Gourd Gallery presents the exhibition, HER on view from March 1 through March 31, 2022. This group exhibition places women and girls at the forefront, as subject matter and as artists. HER features the work of Corliss R. Owen, Brenda Harris, Carol Torian, Mayanthi Jayawardena, Shelvy Ramsey Torian, Kirsten Moore, and Jade. Collectively, these artists represent different generations and ethnic backgrounds, some are students, some are immigrants, some are parents, and all are balancing the joys and challenges of being an artist. Their artwork showcases a diversity of styles, themes, and techniques and provides for an exploration of powerful images of women and girls that are alternately witty, funny, resolute, and introspective.
