On exhibit March 6-April 1 in the Foyer Gallery, Squamish Public Library

The purpose of this show is to honour and celebrate women’s expression in both visual and written form. Enjoy viewing, interpreting, and being moved in a big way by the incredible art of the women in our community around the theme ‘Exposure.’ We will consider the power and potency of International Women’s Day and the creative achievements of women around the globe.

Thanks to Toby Jackson for being the master curator, dj sprouT for the sweet beats, Charlie Olmsted Photography, Zephyr Cafe, Be Clean Naturally for your support.
