is a very special part of Athena. Our goal is to further our mission supporting female artists beyond our arts festival. These are our "Passion Projects". This may include a play written by a female artist, a project or offering that we wish to do in collaboration with another female focused organization, or even a project furthering our support of young women artists in any discipline.
The purpose of Point of Departure is to present works that are the FIRST work in a series or body of work, with the intention of providing insight into an artist's creative process.
Exhibition: Wednesday, January 27th- Friday, February 12th.

How She Sees It. Philosopher Simone de Beauvoir observed that it can be hard for women to see themselves through their own gaze since the social construct of femininity is assigned by man and his gaze is ever permeating. This show included works that reveal each artist's individual ideas of truth and perception and work that celebrates or is a reflection of female identity. The exhibition took place in the 40 West Gallery, Lakewood, CO.
