5TH ANNUAL WOMEN’S ART SHOW & RELATED EVENTS SET FOR MARCH 4 -- APRIL 29
Now in its fifth year, an art show honoring women and their art is in final planning stages for this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) observance in San Marcos. Event founder, Debangana Banerjee, the Price Center Arts Committee, and this year’s guest contributors Glynis Christine, Dianne McCabe and Michelle Wilson are putting together See Me: Changing Perceptions to gather, honor, share, and learn more about the woman’s experience March 4 – April 29 at the Price Center & Garden.
The anchor of the annual observance is the all-women’s visual arts show, which begins with a Call for Art set for Tues., Feb. 29 and Wed., March 1 from 10 am. – 5 pm. at the Center. Visit price-center.org to submit an artist application.
The energy and community created by each year’s annual gatherings has inspired us to create more opportunities,” said Price Center Arts Committee Chair Joan Nagel. “This year we’re using more of a symposium model to host multiple events throughout the two-month show,” she added.
In addition to the Opening IWD Program and the Brown Bag Artists Lunch, this year’s confirmed free events include poetry readings and writing events, a Joydance gathering, a workshop on creating a Field Guide to Inspiration, a Pop-Up art show featuring the work of jailed women, and an event for women entrepreneurs. A complete schedule of events with full details will be available early next month.
Rotating Art Shows are created, curated, and coordinated by the Price Center Arts Committee. For more information about all art shows at the Price Center, please call 512-392-2900, stop by the Center at 222 W. San Antonio St., visit price-center.org or Facebook @ Price Center & Garden.
