March is Women's History Month, a time to highlight the talent and contributions of women. 

Women’s History Month can be traced to pretty humble beginnings. In 1911, the world celebrated its first International Women’s Day. Not until the 1980s did that celebration stretch into a whole week, when President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring a National Women’s History Week in March. In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress designated all of March as Women’s History Month.

In honor of Women's History month, included in this March Gallery Night are three featured local women artists that have been set up with galleries to display recent works, holding space for women's voices and their art.

Here are the artists and the gallery locations:

  • Yen Ospina featured at CAP ArtSpace
  • Lindy Joy Cummings at Hilton Garden Inn
  • Kristina O'Connor at Press Cafe
