All Latina artists are invited to submit artwork for our annual Sulo Mujeres exhibition titled, "Corazonada: Quinceaoera/Fifteen Years of Womenís Work." The exhibit debuts Valentine's Day, Friday February 14, 2003. The exhibit commemorates and honors the Latina women artists in our community. The exhibition is open to the theme of the heart and the way women see the world. The theme "Corazonada" represents a feeling of intuition, presentiment, and foreboding. "Corazonada" explores the ways in which this intuition contributes to an added perception and understanding of situations both political and personal. The theme was! chosen to fit the times we now live in, and to consider the lives of women in the world with the presences of war. The exhibition is open to all media. The media can be installations, altars, sculpture, paintings, photography, mix media and arts and crafts.
