This PHENOMENAL GALLERY SHOW runs from March 12 – March 29, 2022, and we invite you all to join our celebration. Get to know these talented artists through their amazing artwork, for each piece tells a story, HERSTORY, from a unique feminine perspective and lens. Every artist exhibits courage and versatility, giving us an intimate look, snapshots from her ‘Heroine’s Journey.’
When I first entered El Barrio Artspace on Tuesday March 8th, to see the goings on of installation and set-up, I was immediately struck by the easy friendship of our women artists, the harmonious discussions, the collective hub of activity, as art was hung in one place, and then moved for better effect to another. It was clear that everyone present contributed to the growth and flourishing of each other, and everyone desired the very best for their fellow artists. The bonding was visible, audible and immediately.
I was especially delighted to see that the installation was under the special guidance and expertise of artists and curators, Annie Arroyo and Brianna Fernandez. I had met the incredibly talented Annie before, as she had shown her work in SEEING VOICES DE VISIONES BORICUA, the kick-off CAFED gallery show at El Barrio Artspace highlighting artists born in Puerto Rico, and those of Puerto Rican descent. I was charmed then and equally charmed now.

Celebrating Women Artists
Opening night, Friday March 11,2022 finally arrived, and was a huge success.
Family, friends, community members, and diverse lovers of great art, turned up in droves. I could feel the excitement of everyone present. It was real. It was tangible. I also heard “oohs” and “ahhs” and other sounds of wonder as attendees gazed carefully at the hanging artwork. Again, there was that sense of community, joy and friendship, and good “vibes” filled the room.
Debby Schlein was happy, sharing,” I attended the recent opening night of the “Phenomenal Women” artists exhibit in NYC and it was absolutely phenomenal! I loved the diversity of all of the artists and appreciated their various beautifully eclectic styles of artwork. So much of their art “spoke” to me in powerful meaningful ways…I’m looking forward to attending many more art exhibits in the future. Thank you!”
This is what I saw that night. Enjoy this extraordinary event! Have a look at the talented artists, and their phenomenal artwork right here! Explore and contact the CAFED (cafedinc.org) website for more information about an artist and to purchase artwork!
