It’s a new day! This the day that Lord has made let us REJOICE and be glad in it! Months ago, we were all making plans in very uncertain times. This exhibit was initially inspired by Women’s History Month. I planned to do a collection of work inspired by my art “Shero” and honor women outstanding women of Louisiana. But there was change. Change is all around us and we all have stories about how the pandemic has changed us. God used this time to transform my life, push me into my studio, and give a renewed sense of purpose to my art. My Husband, Joseph, and I have been called to build our creative practice and art business together. Our mission is to use this exhibition and coordinated programs to create, enrich and inspire. In addition, we would like to still take the opportunity to celebrate the many brilliant women who have us find our way and grow. We believe that although it is not women’s history month, women deserve to be celebrated all year long. Indeed, it is a day, and we have much to celebrate!
