The Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria celebrates the positive power of women artists with the show, Our Diversity Makes Us Stronger: A Celebration of International Women’s Day, running March 7 to 17 at the Arts Centre at Cedar Hill, 3220 Cedar Hill Rd.

Organizers gathered more than 35 of Victoria’s esteemed women artists whose imagery will fill two of the large gallery spaces at the Arts Centre.

“We wanted to create the feeling of a crowd of women standing together, standing proud,” said Joan McHardy, show co-organizer.

The show includes work by Pat Martin Bates, Phyllis Serota, Yumie Kono, Avis Rasmussen, Millie Shapiro, and the two show organizers, McHardy and Betty Meyers.

Michelle Jacques, chief curator at the Victoria Art Gallery will be the keynote speaker at the opening reception March 8, 7 to 9 p.m.
