Artists honored again this women’s history month

The month of March is officially designated National Women’s History Month, when the nation honors and recognizes women as an important force in American history: in transforming culture, history, politics, as leaders, writers, scientists, educators, historians, artists and much more.

The Howland Cultural Center proudly joins once again in this annual celebration with an exhibition of 34 artists:

Gabrielle Bell, Jennifer Blakeslee, Alissa Corrado, Deb Davidovits, Carolyn De Michel, Virginia Donovan, Regina Dueno, Ronnie Farley, Stephanie Fogarty, Carol Flaitz, Tarryl Gabel, Karen Gersch, MaryAnn Glass, Erica Hauser, Linda Hubbard, Insun Kim, Galina Krasskova, Pat Lane, Helen Lang, Carol Loizides, Basha Maryanska, Bibiana Huong-Matheis, Cynthia McCusker, Jackie Merritt, Susanne Moss, Angelika Rinnhofer, Janet Ruhe-Schoen, Chris Sanders, Teresa Schmittroth, Eleni Smolen, Caitlin Strom, Robyn Tauss, Kate Vikstrom and Catherine Welshman.

The artists offer a variety of work featuring paintings, sculpture and photography. This exhibit is another representation of the quality of artistic expression that contributes significantly to the spiraling reputation of Beacon as a mecca for the arts in the Hudson Valley.

The exhibition opens on Saturday, March 7, with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m., to which the public is invited to meet the artists. It will show from March 7 through 29 with gallery hours every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 1 to 5 p.m. Exceptions to this schedule take place on Sunday, March 8 and 29 for concerts presented by the Howland Chamber Music Circle.
