The women’s group, which has met in the Twin Cities area since 1992, fosters artistic pursuits through regular meetings and exhibitions. While the collective has 18 active members, the exhibition at BLCA will highlight the work of nine painters and photographers:  Lester Hughes-Seamons, Nancy Chakrin, Suzi McArdle, Martha Driessen, Barbara Slater, Sylvia Horwitz, Janet Coleman, Linda Passon-McNally, and Dorothy Childers.

Each artist will share recently created art work in this exhibition.

Bethany Whitehead, Banfill-Locke executive director, said, “This diverse group of women artists will share their individual vision of the natural world through the works in this exhibition. I look forward to seeing the beauty and artistic eye when the art works come together in our gallery space.”

The artists will be celebrated with a 5-7 p.m. March 8 reception at the center. The public is invited to stop in and see the show and meet the artists during the reception.

Free tours of the exhibition are available when arrangements are made at least a week in advance.

Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts is located at 6666 East River Road, Fridley.
