BIBLICAL WOMEN. EQUITY? is the title of an art exhibition and series of evening talks celebrating International Women’s Day today, March 8.
The exhibition opens today and runs until Saturday March 11 at Monmouth Baptist Church.
Organisers are invited people to step into a world of creativity and inspiration, where contemporary art meets timeless stories of courage, love, and perseverance.
‘BIBLICAL WOMEN. EQUITY?’ is a one-of-a-kind event that promises to take you on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
The Art Fringe is proud to present ‘BIBLICAL WOMEN.EQUITY’ an art exhibition that celebrates the lives and significance of women in the Bible, in honour of this year’s International Women’s Day theme #EmbraceEquity.
For four days, Monmouth Baptist Church will come alive with the works of talented artists from all over the country as well as a series of evening talks by local authors, Ann Brown and Katharine Swartz and historian-theologian, Dr Amanda Russell-Jones.
The stories of the women in the Bible have been a source of inspiration for artists throughout history.
Their struggles and triumphs resonate with us even today, regardless of our backgrounds or beliefs.
Through love and betrayal, adventure and intrigue, persecution, and prejudice, these women fought for their rights and challenged the status quo.
Their resilience and strength have inspired generations, and this exhibition aims to bring their stories to life and give these women the voice they deserve.
Through the eyes of contemporary art, visitors will get to experience the personalities and lives of the women of the Bible like never before.
The artists featured in this exhibition have taken inspiration from these women’s stories and created unique and thought-provoking works of art, including paintings, sculpture, photography, and mixed media.
Each piece is a testament to the artist’s interpretation of these women’s experiences, offering a fresh perspective that challenges our thinking.
A spokesperson for the Art Fringe said|: ‘‘We believe that art has the power to transform, inspire, and unite us.
‘‘This exhibition is an invitation to celebrate the contributions of women to our society and to reflect on their role in shaping our world.
‘‘It is a call to #EmbraceEquity and to stand in solidarity with the women who have fought for their faith, equity and justice.’’
The exhibition is open to the public, and admission is free.
A prize of £100 for ‘Young Emerging Artist’ has been generously awarded by Rotary Monmouth.
