This exhibit features the work of artists selected from throughout the region whose entries represent women overcoming traditionally or stereotypically burdensome female responsibilities and turning them into something liberating. Wings from Chains is a feminine spin on the old addage about when given lemons, make lemonade. This show is generously sponsored by TTR | Sotheby’s International Realty.
