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.

Mad Dog Monty  is a series of humorous drawings and etchings by Jim Ireland on display in OMAH's Lounge Gallery from November 19, 2016 - January 15, 2017.
Ireland states, "My daughter had a Boston terrier called Tetley and I started sketching him because he was black and white and so easy to draw [...]And the way he strutted around, he reminded me of a childhood friend called Montague Dennis Oliver Wrigglesworth, so I called this dog character I’d created Monty."
