Does your family have a quilt that is treasured? We would love to see it and hear the story behind it. Please e-mail a high-resolution picture of your quilt to us at email@example.com so that we can include it and your story on our website or social media accounts or our gallery bulletin board!

LATEST NEWS & UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
COVID-19 PAGES: The Influence & Inspiration of Women
The Wells International Foundation (WIF), the Anderson Brickler Gallery (ABG), and the Thinking CAP: Collaborative ART Projects (CAP) are pleased to announce our upcoming online art exhibition entitled COVID-19 PAGES: The Influence & Inspiration of Women.
This virtual exhibition presents a remarkable and exclusive opportunity for practicing women artists, as well as women and girls from schools and community programs, to express a creative vision that celebrates the essential work of women during the COVID-19 pandemic. The theme, “The Influence and Inspiration of Women,” is conceived to inspire creativity through visual arts as well as stimulate thoughtful discussion about women in leadership and inspirational roles who are making a positive difference locally, nationally, and globally in all sectors of the economy.
Through artworks, COVID-19 PAGES will present a global perspective on what mothers, wives, teachers, nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers, politicians, police chiefs, small business owners, corporate employees, organizers of community service programs, and more are doing and how they are feeling during the pandemic, wherever they are in the world.
The PAGES are tangible hands-on expressions created as a global collaboration through art to emphasize the work these women do to alleviate the urgent health and social-economic challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis. The exhibition will share “art in action” ideas to acknowledge and inspire underserved communities during this stressful time. The focus on women who are at the forefront of the global crisis is a salute to their outstanding leadership and community service as they address the needs of people around the world.
Phase I of the project will showcase contributions by professional women artists. These women are often marginalized regarding their access to exhibition space and underpaid for their work relative to their male counterparts. COVID-19 PAGES will provide a singular opportunity for them to expose their work as part of the reckoning of this unprecedented historic event.
Phase II participants will consist of nonprofessional artists from schools, youth groups, eldercare facilities, and community organizations. These women and girls will draw inspiration from the works submitted for Phase I to create drawings, paintings, photos, and collages that will help them release the emotional and mental trauma of the pandemic through art therapy and positive learning through the arts.
The launch for Phase I is scheduled for Women’s History Month (March) 2021. The launch for Phase II is scheduled for June 2021.
