Sweet ’Art has decided to launch it's first show in aid of international women’s day.
International women’s day has been observed since in the early 1900's, now held annually on the 8th of March, and brings together a global web of rich and diverse activity connecting women from all over the world.
A celebration of the achievements and contributions of women as well as a critique of the way in which women are perceived, shaped and contained within society, Show #1 is an exhibition where artists, regardless of gender, are invited to explore through any medium themes surrounding female form, female issues and the roles of women in today’s society.
Show #1 as the launch show will reflect this in showcasing a range of work that follows a positive, feminist ethos with consideration of the way in which imagery representing women can so often be created in a context of negative conditions as determined by gender.
Sweet 'Art are very pleased to announce that Show #1 will be located at The Crypt Gallery in St Pancras, London.
We are also extremely pleased to be taking donations on our private view night supporting the amazing charity Wise Dolls. Wise Dolls supports female survivors of domestic violence through Arts Therapies.
We are also proud to have our event as part of One Billion Rising.
