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.
