Guests gathered at Chuck Gallery to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) with the launch of Unmasking.
The International Women’s Day celebration was held at the local gallery on Saturday 4 March 2017. An inspirational local artist’s work – entitled ‘Unmasking’ – was showcased.
Artist Jessica Omitola’s Unmasking exhibition presents intriguing and brilliant illustrations of a varied range of female forms. Her work was appreciated by visitors, exceeding expectations.
The evening began with an address from the Chair of the night, Arlene Isaacs-Lowe. Issacs-Lowe encouraged attendees to be bold for change. Issacs-Lowe – who is an advocate for women – was accompanied by Janet Thomas and Annette Thiam.
Panellists who contributed to discussions – centred on the theme of IWD – included Professor Femi and Professor Jan Oyebode.
Omitola’s Unmasking exhibition will be featured at the gallery until 2 April 2017.
