HerStory 8: Patience for Spring

H8 Poster-final


Making HerStory, the annual exhibition series by Michelle D. Parrish celebrates the vast and diverse forms of creativity offered by women artists. This year’s focus celebrates the journey women artist travel in their quest to explore their inner creativity. Making HerStory 8 is the final destination of this journey and we can’t be more elated to share it with you, our many friends, and supporters. The theme, Patience for Spring represents this final culmination as Spring is the slow regeneration of the earth, life, and its bounty. It is only through the seemingly long dormant season of Winter can Spring occur and thus, we must be patient…and that patience pays off.
