Like women around the nation and across the globe, Patricia Anderson Turner of Punta Gorda, FL woke up years ago to a reality that women’s voices were not being heard. Determined to change that, an idea formed to find a platform where women could speak loudly and be heard clearly. Using art as this voice, Turner called on her friends, female artists of all media from many locations, to make pieces that express their concerns, their pride, and their history. From each of their studios in multiple states and countries the artists accepted Turner’s challenge to explore the slippery landscape of American politics, ownership of the female body, immigration, gun control, the accomplishments of all women in history with an emphasis on the history and issues of People of Color – any topic to which they wanted to give voice, perspective and context. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in the River Arts District of Fort Myers, FL will host three exhibitions, “Women Take Issue”, “The Female Spirit”, and selections from the OURstory and HERstory Collections that honor Black Women, from February 4 – 23 rd. An opening is scheduled for February 4 from 6 until 10pm during River Art Walk. Several of the artists will be present to greet visitors and discuss their work.
