Women Strong is a multi-media exhibit that celebrates the lives and work of women artists in the Dayton region. It will be on display in the Main Library Opportunity Space @ Patterson, 215 E. Third Street, February 7 to March 29. A reception is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 2:30-4:00 p.m.
The brainchild of Audrey Masden Davis and Janet Olney Lasley, retired educators, friends and artists, Women Strong began with a gathering of fellow artists to share creative energy and support each other’s work. The idea driving the project was to bring women of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds together as a team to show and share their work. They have since become a warm, encouraging and challenging team of women.
The 11 exhibiting artists are: Diana Barr, Yvette Walker-Dalton, Audrey Davis, Lois Fortson-Kirk, Erin Smith-Glenn, Cydnie Deeds King, Janet Lasley, Nasrin Majidi, Marsha Pippenger, Frances Turner and Yufeng Wang.
