Herstory exhibition of women artists

HERStory 2017

An Exhibition to Advance The Status of Women Artists

April 27 – June 27, 2017

Why “HERStory”?

For centuries women artists have inspired, enlightened and informed us with their enormous talent and commitment. Many have served as creative trailblazers. Unfortunately, their contributions have gone under-recognized.

Manhattan Arts International, has been presenting “HERStory” exhibitions on this website since the year 2000, under the direction of Renee Phillips, artists’ advocate and mentor. We will continue to provide a forum for women artists in our annual “HERStory” exhibitions until there is a fair and equal balance of women artists represented by art museums, galleries, art book publishers, major private and public collections, auction houses, and the media.
