HERstory is a term for history written from a feminist perspective, emphasizing the role of women, or told from a woman’s point of view. What’s YOUR story? What’s HERstory?  We want to know.  As artists, we tell our personal narratives through our work. For this exhibition, we will be featuring the selected works along with the accompanying “story”. Although art speaks to everyone differently and is open to interpretation by the viewer, we desire to engage our exhibition visitors more fully with the uniquely compelling stories that drive you to create your personal works of art.
