We've planned events for this Thursday, July 13, when the gallery will be open at 5 pm, and then we will head up to room AH306 for a panel discussion focusing on how women can support each other and work to end gender oppression. Arts and culture writer Alex Zaragoza will moderate the conversation with Marva Whitehead, artist; K-B Gressitt, feminist writer and former Women Studies lecturer; Ann Hoiberg from NOW, and Laura McLean, Program Manager for STARS. The audience will be able to ask questions as we try to figure out how to improve the world in which we live.

Catalogs of the show are available at the exhibit, panel discussion, and artist talk. They cost $10 and all proceeds will be donated to STARS, as will proceeds from sales of our Feminist Artist Coloring Book, featuring work from the artists of FIG. The coloring book is $20 and can also be found on Amazon.
