Project 317 will open the “Women in Art” exhibition on May 6 | neighborhood supplement

Project 317, a gallery located at 317 S. 12th St., will open a new exhibit featuring 11 local and international female artists on the first Friday, May 6, from 4-8 p.m.

The “Women in Art” exhibition includes works by Amber Roland, Renata Solimini, Lisa Wellnitz, Audrey Greve, Lori Thomas, Jamie Tate, Gladys Weidebein, Galina Keydan, Riita Kuivinen, Stephanie Caudy and Jessie Case. The exhibition is curated by Dean Settle of Metro Gallery and includes oils, acrylics, watercolours, collages and colored pencils.

“All of these artists represent human creativity,” Settle says. “Most have painted or drawn all their lives. These women juggled between work, children, university, their professions and their well-being. All have sold work in the community for the past three decades and have had an association with Metro Gallery for the past 10 years.

Megan McCollister, Director of Project 317, said, “In May, for the first anniversary of Project 317, we chose to honor female artists. I believe in appreciating women, hearing their stories, and learning from experiences beyond our own. Over the past year, having the opportunity to share my space with others in the community has been humbling and rewarding. »
