There  will be an art exhibition in a London Gallery in March called ‘Threads’.   The exhibition is a specially curated show for Women’s History Month.  Works of art from fifty artists from around the world will be brought together in ‘an international exploration of the threads that transcend the divisions of country, culture, language and religion to connect us all through our gender, humanity, experiences, friendship and relationships’ (theartistspool.co.uk).  421 more words
