WiRealm is Co-curating, exhibiting, and teaching.
The Sacred Feminine art exhibit explores the essence of female energy, the power of life and birth; it connects that energy to ideas, expressions, dreams, life and all of existence. We all have masculine and feminine qualities inside of us. The exhibit is at Del Ray Artisans gallery from May 3 through June 2, 2019. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, May 3 from 7-9pm to meet the curators and artists.
