‘Inspirational Women Artists’, was an exhibition and fundraising silent auction in celebration of International Women’s Day 2023 in partnership with Yellow Door.
As the second year running of this empowering and inspiring exhibition, attendees were invited to explore a diverse collection of powerful and uplifting works emphasising the influential impact of women artists past and present and how their lasting legacy has continued to inspire the artists of today. From intricate illustrations to graphic prints and collages, the exhibition featured emerging and established artists across disciplines and at all stages of their artistic careers who are utilising their creativity to make a positive difference and raise essential funds for an important cause.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition, visitors had the chance to take home the works on display by taking part in our Silent Auction. For each artwork sold, 50% of the proceeds went to the artist who made the work and 50% was donated to Yellow Door, a Southampton-based charity that prevents and responds to domestic and sexual abuse. The silent auction ended during the closing event, where the final amount of money raised was announced by Council Leader of of Southampton Council Satvir Kaur as being £2,659.
