a show curated by Vonder Gray
Having just returned to WAV after 2 years in LA, I was wracking my brain to come up with a group show to present in the Gallery at WAV. I seem to be in 'super-manifester' mode ( I have a beautiful new space at WAV after all! ) because all these amazing women began showing me their new and exciting work and the idea for WOMEN IN ART (the 1st of many I hope) was born!
