Sorry boys, this one's Just for the Ladies!

Updated: Dec 13, 2023

This is the 2nd Women's Only Networking Event that I held at the gallery and my first show featuring the fantastic artwork of Donna Schwandt and special guest artist Charlotte Schembri. Donna's art had sold so well in pre-show release that I literally had wall space to spare (positive problem) and was fortunate enough to have a few pieces of Charlotte's to fill in the gaps!

Here is Donna and Charlotte standing in front of Red-Eye Flight, Zephr & Peppermint. Peppermint has already sold in the pre-show opening, but Zephr in blue and the gorgeous show stopper Red-Eye Flight is still available!

I couldn't resist, I had to buy Modern Love, the piece on the top left!! This just called to me and I couldn't bare the thought of anyone else having her. Lol! This is how I know if a piece was meant to be mine; this method of collecting has never steered me wrong!

Limelight is shown right below and to the right is Charlotte's piece titled, Aqua Optical Illusion III. Email for details on her piece (!

Check out the fun Instagram Reel we made of the event!

This will give you a good idea of the vibes we have going on!

These gatherings were birthed from a deep desire to connect the many inspiring women I come across through my art. Whether a client, close friend or acquaintance, I want to get to know you better while also connecting you to my network. There is no better time in history for us as women to unite.

These EVENTS, first and foremost, are About the ART. It's what I love, it's who I am, it's the reason that I wake up every day and why I have pursued this craft for almost a full decade. I love making something beautiful that brings others joy, peace and happiness. I love how much art contributes to a room and makes it complete. If I can be a part of that for someone, my heart is full.

Not only are these Gallery Happy Hours meant for supporting local art, but it's for community, connection, and empowering women. I see how talented we are, I see how hard we work, I see how competent we are, AND I SEE how when we get together, WE GET SHIT DONE!!!

This is why I wanted to facilitate a space to connect, collaborate, and make things happen. The more that we lift one another up, the more opportunities we give to ourselves, each other, our daughters and our grand daughters.

This event was full of energy and so many dynamic women in all aspects of business. From our marketing entrepreneurs to our ladies in tech. Take a good look at these women because they are going to rule the world and I'm more than ecstatic to be a small part of making that happen!

Let me give you some statistics from the National Museum of Women in the Arts that prove, especially in the arts, how unequal women are seen and represented as....

1. Only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America are women.

2. Just 11% of all acquisitions and 14% of exhibitions at 26 prominent US museums over the past decade were work by female artists.

3. Women earn 70% of Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in the US, though only 46% of working artists (across all arts disciplines) are women.

I know these stats and it still shocks me every time I see them. My mission is to move these numbers in the right direction towards EQUALITY! I created these Happy Hours to be a supportive environment for women to network, uplift each other and the support the arts.

This is only my 2nd gathering and already I had a few boys ask to join. Wow- Absolutely NOT, I'll never apologize for holding a sacred space for women to feel safe, empowered and connected! There is a definite magic that happens when we gather and as you can see above, there is no way that I would be willing to give this up!

Fear not! We will be having a Public Group Art show including the work of Donna Schwandt, Charlotte Schembri, myself and more artists on September 16th, 2023! So save the date, measure your potential art spaces and get ready to fill your home with something soulful, original and one of a kind just like you!

Be sure to subscribe to my mailing list to make sure you are on the invite list!
