Strong Women Move Mountains

A Women's Art Collaborative
Nine female artists from the Mount Washington Valley area and Pennsylvania, have come together and collaborated on a large painting that speaks to women's empowerment.
Originating at the Jackson Art Studio, the collaborative is a fundraiser for two charities and 100% of proceeds are going to these charities. The Local charity is Starting Point and the New England charity is Planned Parenthood.  These charities support Strong Women.

Their intention is to bring additional awareness surrounding women's rights, education, and the environment, through the arts. The collaborative painting symbolically references these achievements and provokes the question: What is it like to express yourself as a woman in today’s world? 
The completed painting will be unveiled this March, as the cornerstone piece, in a juried art show titled Strong Women Move Mountains: A Women’s Art Collaborative featuring an additional 30 female artisans. 
The women collaborating on this painting chose to depict the goddess Athena, as their muse, and role model for this project. Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. She is said to be accompanied by an owl, which they have also included in the painting, a long time symbol for knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition.
The message these women are putting out in the world, through their artwork, is meant to inspire and encourage others, not only to collaborate on  meaningful messages, but to encourage all women to reach for the stars, follow their dreams, be limitless, find their individual courage and know where to find support. 

 Dates  for the show are Friday March 6 - Sat March 28 at the Pace Gallery at Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, Fryeburg, ME.
