SWAN Day Women’s Art Exhibit: Celebration of Women Artists
On Saturday, March 31, 2018, LIFE Center Stage will host a free Women’s Art Exhibit at Rest Stop Rejuvenate 21 Maple Ave. Rockaway, NJ 07866. The Art Exhibit will feature artwork from 12 community artists, Andrea Grillo, Anna Zibit, Arianne Peterson, Caitlin Lodato, Ellen Avigliano, Kimberly Rose, Joanne Labato Stone, Jyoti Godhani, Megan Stypulkoska, Sherin Hanfy, Tabitha Booth and Vicky Mulligan.
This event is part of a new international celebration of women artists called SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now Day). “Women artists are creating change in their communities and around the world,” said Martha Richards, the co-founder of SWAN Day. “This day of celebration will help people imagine what the world would be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives. The long term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities to recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning.”
The SWAN Day Art Exhibit will be on display for the month of April, it is intended to increase access to the arts and bring women artists into the spotlight in our community.
