Many congratulations to our six SAQA Artists whose beautiful work has been accepted for inclusion in theBALANCING ACT International Exhibition...
Throughout history, women have had to balance responsibilities to community, home and family while pursuing other interests, jobs or careers. From those who helped farm the land to those who worked the factories during wartime, to those who stand shoulder to shoulder with men to pursue careers, and those who serve as caregivers; women have always had to juggle the various aspects of their lives. This show celebrates women both throughout history and today--and is open to any interpretation each artist feels inspired to depict. What have we accomplished that we now enjoy as rights and freedoms that our grandmothers and their grandmothers did not? What obstacles are left to conquer? We encourage both representational and abstract work.
