Last year’s exhibit featured work by over 400 artists from as far afield as Australia and Guyana, and included the work of notable artists such as Yoko Ono and Dottie Attie. This year we hope you will join us in our mission to provide leadership and community to women in the arts by exhibiting your work in Wish You Were Here 11.
All the proceeds of this exhibition help fund our programs, including our Fellowship Program for under represented and emerging women artists.
Each donated card will be labeled and a list of participating artists will be made available to gallery visitors.
