The artwork of the women included in this exhibit represents the rich diversity of artistic talent available in the area.  

The artists are: Nastassia Davis, Kandice Fields, Jasmine Haines, Heather Deegan Hires, Randi Meekins, Glynnis Reed, Chanelle René, Sydnéi Smith Jordan, Simone and Hazel Levy Washington.
