From Women‘s Hands

- April 27th, 2006
More than 150 female artists, authors, musicians and film makers will show and sell their work at “From Women’s Hands,” a juried exhibition that runs Friday, April 28 through Sunday, April 30 at the Hagerty Center in Traverse City. 
New this year is a contribution from the Bay Area Bead Guild of 14 intricately adorned beaded bras that will be silent auctioned.  Each art bra has a theme and a story behind its creation and is covered with at least 80% art beads.  The bras can be seen in advance at the Osiris Bead and Import Shop in downtown TC.
Film is a major focus of the artfest this year with the work of several female filmmakers available for viewing at Hagerty Center.  One  film, “Colorblind,” has appeared in 14 festivals and has won numerous awards.
This year’s event will also feature “Where I Live,” a breast cancer oratorio. The Trillium Singers will be featured and are thrilled to have secured Amy Wallace-Styles, noted Philadelphia mezzo soprano for the performance. There will be two performances, Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 12 noon.   
The art event draws hundreds of viewers and benefits the Women’s Cancer Fund Munson Healthcare Foundation. The Women’s Cancer fund will receive 20 percent of all art sales and 100 percent of the proceeds from the art raffle, silent auction and Oratorio performances.  Donations are tax deductible. The success of the 2005 show allowed FWH to gift $20,000 - making this show the top fundraising event for the Munson’s Women’s Cancer Fund. 

 Hours: Friday, April 28, 6-10 pm; Saturday, April 29, 10 am - 6 pm; Sunday, April 30, 11 am - 4 pm.  The Hagerty Center is located at Northwestern Michigan College’s Maritime Academy on East Bay in Traverse City, just east of the Holiday Inn.
