The National League of American Pen Women-Fort Lauderdale, made up of a select group of professional women in the arts, presents: “Through A Woman’s Heart.” This exhibit will showcase some of South Florida’s most accomplished artists’ latest works celebrating South Florida’s natural beauty. Working in various mediums including photography, water color, acrylics and oils, these renowned artists will each pay tribute to the beauty of South Florida’s most remarkable natural assets. The exhibit will be organized and curated by native Miami photographer Phoenix who has enjoyed a diverse career that has encompassed journalism, media relations and film-making. Phoenix’ primary studio and sanctuary are south Florida’s wetlands and the Everglades and her serene and startling scenes will be complemented in words and imagery by her fellow artists.
About the National League of American Pen Women
Since its founding in 1897 by Marian Longfellow O’Donoghue, Henry Longfellow’s niece, the League seeks to create progression and advancement in visual arts, literary work, and musical composition. As the oldest and largest women’s arts organization, members share their creativity in a number of ways, including workshops, exhibitions, discussion groups, performances, demonstrations and lectures, fostering networking and friendships among members, while maintaining a high, broad standard of work, effort and strength that comes from the union. Each year the Fort Lauderdale Branch awards three $1,000 scholarships to a high school senior woman who has been accepted and enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited college, university or technical school.
