Two years ago, Sheila Urevbu left corporate America to join her husband, Ephraim, at Art Village Gallery in downtown Memphis. As a gallery curator, she recognized the pronounced gender inequalities in visual arts, so she set out on a mission to identify women who dared to pour their passions and life experiences into painting.
The “Breaking Barriers” exhibit highlights the works of seven tremendously talented and diverse female painters from around the world. The exhibit opens February 24 with a free wine and cheese reception from 6:30-8:30PM and runs throughout the month of March — Women’s History Month.
