The exhibition entitled ‘A Seat at the Table’ features a diverse collection of art from artists of all backgrounds.

The display focuses a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture, and photography. Each piece is a unique expression of the artist’s experience and vision, showcasing the diverse perspectives of women in our community.

One artist is also exposing viewers to augmented reality through his work.

The exhibition aims to explore the formative role that women play in crafting a better society. The event will be an opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation and reflection, and to celebrate the contributions of women to the world of art.
