Designed to uplift women artists, Artful Reflections is an opportunity to connect artists with each other and their communities. This monthly event, open to artists and nonartists, invites reflection about the art work. Through the participants’ experience of the art and the moderated conversations that follow, connection and community are strengthened.
Taking place at a gallery (owned or curated by women artists), participants let the art in to increase understanding of themselves and others. Featured women artists are invited to listen to the impact of their art. Join us for our next session as part of the Crossing Borders Art Show.
