"Women Strong" Visual Art Exhibit

Women Strong is a multi-media exhibit that celebrates the lives and work of women artists in the Dayton region. It will be on display in the Main Library Opportunity Space @ Patterson, 215 E. Third Street, February 7 to March 29. A reception is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 2:30-4:00 p.m.

The brainchild of Audrey Masden Davis and Janet Olney Lasley, retired educators, friends and artists, Women Strong began with a gathering of fellow artists to share creative energy and support each other’s work. The idea driving the project was to bring women of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds together as a team to show and share their work. They have since become a warm, encouraging and challenging team of women.

The 11 exhibiting artists are: Diana Barr, Yvette Walker-Dalton, Audrey Davis, Lois Fortson-Kirk, Erin Smith-Glenn, Cydnie Deeds King, Janet Lasley, Nasrin Majidi, Marsha Pippenger, Frances Turner and Yufeng Wang.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Audrey Davis at or Janet Lasley at
