International Women's Day : 100 women 100 artworks

The International Women's Day website has all sorts of goodies including artwork showings. What a great idea!
"The purpose of these artworks, all created by diverse women from around the world, is to inspire, challenge and provoke thought. These artworks celebrate the artistic grace of women. 2011 sees 100 years since the first International Women's Day was held so to mark this very special Centenary the '100 Women, 100 Artworks' initiative was launched."
Now scurry along and submit your pieces folks!

Hey everybody,

Please note that our venue has changed for the WOMA exhibition.  We will now be housed at #9 Young Street, St George's, in the former United Travel Agency building.

All dates remain the same, but you will be submitting at the new location, instead of the Alliance Francaise.

Please note artists of 3D works, that your works will be now exhibited for the length of the show.

All regulations, guidelines and notices will be updated to reflect this change.

Thank you,

WOMA committee
