Description

This month-long pop-up exhibition is a platform for women artists in Westport to bring forth works that frequently remain hidden: creative responses and expressions that we all too often keep at bay.

Despite progress, there is an ingrained societal protocol women adhere to - one of accommodation and editing. This exhibition seeks to uncover this hidden work, and celebrate its power and meaning.

The art and accompanying events in this exhibit will undoubtedly embolden viewers to converse and connect around shared stories, both serious and funny.
