Highlights of Women Interpreting the Female Form Opening Reception

On Sunday, March 6, 2011, I braved the crazy rain and weather to attend the opening reception entitled Women Interpreting the Female Form at The Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, Virginia.  Two of my artworks were juried into this exhibition and I was honored to have my work included in this awesome show of artwork by women artists across the DC Metro area.

The exhibition of artwork by women artists is in celebration of Women’s History Month, and in special recognition of the 1917 history of the Occoquan Workhouse and the suffragist’s movement.   Raphael Fitzgerald, curatorial assistant and exhibition coordinator at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, juried the art submitted and selected the following award winners:
