23 artists from the Pittsburgh area and members of AAP, will join together in the first collaborative exhibition with International Images fine art gallery. ‘Venus, Eve, and Madonna’, a show revolving entirely on the power and essence of the female spirit, was created to exhibit the artistic grasp and representation of true femininity and female perception of the world. It searches for the complexity and depth of the influence of women in history, the present, and in human relationships.
