For 14 years, The Gallery at Lakeland spring exhibition schedule has included a special show dedicated to art of women. Always part of the Women's History Month during the month of March, the show is the brain child of Mary Urbas, gallery coordinator at Lakeland and the curator of this exhibition. The show, "from WOMAN XIV...Created by women, of women and about women" features an extensive display of pieces, representing multiple art forms that were submitted by 38 artists from all over the country. The show runs from Feb. 21 through March 26.

This year, a virtual tour of the show will be offered on The Gallery at Lakeland webpage. Conducted by curator Mary Urbas, the virtual tour allows viewers to enjoy learning about the gallery pieces safely from home. In addition, an online artist reception is scheduled for Sunday, March 21, from 3-4 p.m.

As a further celebration of women artists, Urbas has coordinated the creation of a gallery tour directory, which is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The tour directory, with 100 galleries and over 200 artists participating, lists regional studios that are also hosting events (both in-person and virtually) dedicated to women. More information can be found on The Gallery at Lakeland webpage.
