As the first group of shows to exhibit live for 2021 at the Counihan Gallery, we have been scheduled to coincide with International Women's Day which Moreland Council promotes

in their public program.

Curated by Sharon Plummer, the exhibition of our handkerchiefs will occur concurrently

with 'Garden' by Heather Hesterman, and 'Disobedient Daughters' curated by Sophia Cai. We are very excited to be exhibiting in such great company.
