Schedule of Events:
6pm & 6:45 pm | Tango performances
6-6:45 pm | Docent lead tour of the exhibition, Engraved
Forty European and Latin American female artists from Argentina, Austria, Ecuador and Venezuela present
some of their most representative pieces. This exhibition features artists from different regions of the world who
develop their artistic work through techniques such as lithography (printing or calcareous stone), printmaking
(engraving in metal or wood), digital drawing and graphics, using mostly paper as a noble support of the
representative depth of the images. The artworks will be exhibited following diverse techniques that highlight
their individuality: with frames, without frames, as installations, and within showcases generating a climate of
strength and subtleties. This demonstrates the virtues and characteristics of each individual work but, as a whole
provides the viewer with an intense and harmonious journey into the world of each of these artists.
7-7:45 pm | Blended Conversations
Blended Conversations features local women who will share their own real-life stories in an intimate, relaxed
and informal setting. This segment will boast a variety of speakers from all walks of life who will share real and
raw stories from their own lives, inspiring others to walk away feeling hopeful, encourage and united with other
women in their community.
