“HerStory” 2018 on-line juried exhibition on view until August 20th

"It is an honor and privilege to present the Manhattan Arts International “HerStory” 2018 exhibition through August 20, 2018. It features art by extraordinary women artists from around the world. A range of subjects, styles, mediums, and sizes of art reflect their far-reaching artistic competence and innovation.  As the juror and curator of this exhibition I took care to select artists who meet our standards of excellence. They have mastered their mediums and developed a cohesive body of work in a signature style that reflects their unique creative vision. They have also acquired essential career credentials, among other requirements. Unfortunately, there were many deserving artists who also entered excellent works of art; however this exhibition was limited to 57 artists. Please contact the artists directly to purchase, exhibit or write about their artwork. Links to their websites are provided." ~ Renée Phillips, Juror/Curator & Director, Manhattan Arts International

"Off the Grid: Contemporary Fiber +Textile Art"
