I was lucky enough and honored to have a work selected for the international, juried exhibition “Old Enough to Know Better” sponsored by the Women’s Caucus for Art Philadelphia Chapter. Works are by mid-career and emerging women, and women-identified, artists aged 35 and over. The theme is the stubbornness and persistence of artistic vocation.
This was a highly competitive show. Out of the 265 artists who together submitted 2087 pieces of work, only 67 pieces were accepted.
