VISION–Empowering Women Through Art

The VISION show, curated by sister artists Deborah Rolig and Diane Gray, focuses on the RISE, GROWTH and PROGRESS of women during the last 100 years. The artwork in this gallery-wide show reflects the everyday life and challenges of women – the self-discovery, the victories, the defeats, the mundane, and the extravagant. This is an opportunity to celebrate women’s UNITY, STRENGTH, and VISION for the future.

Not only is this an artistic endeavor, but a lesson in trusting your intuition, working with it and following through.
