Since its inception in 1997, the International Women's Day Art Show has inspired hundreds of women to participate in highly dynamic exhibitions, exploring a wide range of media and themes. 

In celebration of International Women's Day (March 8), the show's main goal is to encourage women to express themselves artistically in a themed group show, which is not juried and therefore inclusive. The spirit of the exhibition is one of affirmation and co-operation.
