Celebrating Women in the Arts

Female artists are currently less likely to have artwork sold through a gallery, to have exhibited at art fairs, or achieve the highest sums at auction. Her Art-Story exists to help address this imbalance and celebrate the achievements of successful women working in the arts and bring them to public attention. Generously our speakers discuss their practice, obstacles they have faced, and opportunities that have helped along the way.
