A frequent debate amongst feminists is whether women should organise sometimes separately from men. In this exhibition only works by women artists will be on display and, in a radical move, ONLY women will be admitted to the exhibition.

Women artists are invited to come along and work within the space and create art that will be displayed throughout September, a rare opportunity to chat with fellow artists and discuss their work in a gallery environment.  With artists in residence working on site.

Female life drawing running Wed 8th-10th August and Mon-Friday, 13th to 17th of August, from 1-4pm. Bring own materials. Sessions will cost £5 per hour payable to the model. Six places available per day, please book in advance by contacting Sarah Wilson: vilebodies@hotmail.com.
