With the lockdown, we are still pretty much looking for online experiences and one of the best in December was a zoom celebration of the completion of the Women’s Woven Voices 1000+ story cloth weavings tapestry exhibition at FrontPorch Gallery with Julie Weaverling and founder Brecia Kralovic-Logan.
|Brecia Kralovic-Logan and is that a Post for Peace and Justice I see next to her sign?|
Women’s Woven Voices project is an international, collaborative art project that promotes women's empowerment through writing (guide), weaving (guide) and sharing (guide). When Front Porch became involved they hoped for 100 participants but are showing approx. 750 - 36 inch strips sewn together to make a chorus of voices.

The red fringe ties the whole group together graphically but it also symbolizes love and creates a visual talking point about solutions to sexual abuse, a larger project.
Front Porch will display these artworks in all their facilities. Then it will go around the world hopefully with special stops in support of the Washington DC’s Commission on Women and Girls.
