to organize, recognize, & celebrate
women, femme, nonbinary, & gender non-conforming creatives
via pop-up events throughout New York’s Hudson Valley.
Statistics show that women, femme, nonbinary, & gender-nonconforming creatives are underrepresented and underpaid in fine arts spaces such as galleries, museums, performance venues, and more throughout the world.
Founded in 2018, CelebrateWomxn845 began with the intention to provide platform and opportunity for these marginalized creatives to share their work and to create space for the community to come together, share experiences via the arts, and learn from one another while centering those who are underrepresented. We pay participating artists, do not take commission on sold work, work with venues that are like-minded, source supplies and food locally and consciously, and pay collaborators for their efforts. We are committed to holding space, amplifying those in our area, and helping to make and keep the Hudson Valley creative community excellent.
