I’m always honored to be part of events that focus on the empowerment of women, especially through my artwork. On March 2nd, Casa 0101 Theater held a reception for the art exhibit “Sacred Feminine” at their new location in Boyle Heights. I was one of their featured artists along with Letty Bellavida, Emilia Garcia, Cynthia Guillen, Josefina Lopez, Pola Lopez, Martha Mejia, Susan Molina, Angela Ortiz, Lilia Ramirez, Melissa Ramirez, Danelle Rivas, Elisa Salcedo and Julia Zarate. The exhibit covers a range of emotions mixed with spirituality and cultural references as a symbol of healing, strength and perseverance. The event kicked-off the 6th annual BHLIFE Film Festival, celebrating International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month.
BHLIFE promotes and supports the vision and voices of Latina filmmakers, whose work stands against the stereotypes so often seen in mainstream film. For more information about the festival, please head over to Facebook to see a powerful introduction by Josefina Lopez, founder of Casa 0101 and Screenwriter for Real Women have Curves.
Sacred Feminine is still on view until March 31st
