An opening reception will take place on March 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. at 743 S. Lucerne Blvd. Thereafter, viewing will be available by appointment only, or during other public Ebell events.

Three professionals from the Los Angeles arts scene will serve as jurors: Shana Nys Dambrot, arts editor for L.A. Weekly; Taylor Bythewood-Porter, independent curator and former assistant curator at the California African American Museum (CAAM); and Amy Scott, executive vice president of research and interpretation and Marilyn B. and Calvin B. Gross Curator of Visual Arts at The Autry Museum.

“The Ebell of Los Angeles was one of the first locations in Los Angeles to exhibit artwork by women. Our focus on art and women’s stories stems from deep within the fabric of our organization,” said Laurie Schecter, president of the board of directors of The Ebell.

“This year’s art exhibit will focus on the journeys, hopes and dreams of women throughout the ages and will be judged by an exceptional group of professional women who have, and continue to make, invaluable contributions to visual art in Los Angeles.”

The planning committee selected “A Woman’s Place” to inspire artists to share their own stories, reflections, hopes and dreams for women and the place they take in society. The exhibit will be one part of an array of activities celebrating National Women’s History Month at The Ebell throughout the month of March.
