ProspectusAugust 2017 I am Woman – Hear Me Roar – Exhibition

I am Woman – Hear me Roar! is a show that was inspired by ordinary women, who do extraordinary things! Let’s face it, Woman Rock! – They bring life into the world, they have broken through glass ceilings, and go above and beyond to care for others! This show will feature works of art that celebrate all females, whether they be human or from the animal kingdom, present or past, real or imagined, divine or demure. There are many sides to these fabulous creatures that this collection of works will explore! The curator, Kelly E. Marra, has been dreaming of this show with visions of lionesses, portraits, abstracts and more with a tribal vibe.

About the Curator: Kelly E. Marra is an Artist, from the North Texas Area, that loves to explore and create with a variety of mediums.

She is a member of The Cove Gallery in McKinney, Texas and is inspired to nurture the relationship between local artists and their communities.
