Guzda, Flavia Moraes Lodato, Amrita Majumder, Amy Oestreicher and Cyn Elise Sterback.
The gallery will offer a variety of events, workshops and talks that focus on women -- Women Artists supporting Women Artists to foster and encourage our voices and creativity. Events are listed on their Facebook page: Palette of Sisterhood.
The core group of artists met through the Stamford Downtown Street Sculpture projects. Some have participated for many years, while some joined the ranks this year. Through their connections they have attracted other women artists in Stamford.
“The response has been amazing. Not only to the art on display – which is unique and fabulous, but the number of women out there doing incredible work to raise awareness for women issues and elevating creativity on a global scale.” said Laurie Guzda, creator of the project.
“The opportunity to be a part of Palette of Sisterhood and show my art with such talented, powerful and phenomenal women has been such an honor. Stamford is my hometown, to come back to my roots where it all began has been such a beautiful experience.” said Alicia Cobb.
Cyn Elise Sterback says, “Being part of this amazingly talented group of women artists has brought me much joy and inspiration to push my creativity to explore the endless possibilities we can achieve as artists.”
"An opportunity to exhibit art which reflects my distinctively feminine, elegant and simple style." added Jane Cowles.
Another of the new artists, Samantha Cosentino, had this to say, “One of the best decisions of my life was attending the all-women’s Smith College in Northampton, MA, a dynamic intellectual and creative community that empowers women to succeed. For the first time since graduation I feel like that again here and I’m grateful.”
And Amy Oestreicher feels, “Art is the best way for me to feel connected to myself and to others - a boundless container to express what can be too overwhelming for words.”
