Women's Work 2014
Thanks for another successful celebration!
Our Eighth Annual Women's Work Festival has wrapped up, and we thank the more than 30 presenting artists who shared their work and their talent with our audiences. Thanks to our IndiGoGo supporters, we were able to distribute some (modest) compensation to the presenting artists. Women's Work will be back next year with another exciting roster of women and their creations -- if you're interested in submitting to present in 2015, please join our mailing list - the sign-up form is in the top right quadrant of every page of the web site.
