Loganberry News March 2019

Happy Women's History Month!

We are creatures of habit and we are products of our environment; we like to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Our events this month feature all those things, and yet, there are new projects on the horizon, too, new ways of responding to our communities, new partnerships to forge. What projects are you working on? How can we be a part of your quest for a better world? We have deep roots here, but they're meaningless without your input. Thank you for all you are doing in your communities. Please talk to us; let us make an impact together.

Lenabella: The Imaginarium of One Woman’s Mind
Wednesday, March 6, 2019, 6pm-8pm
~1st Wednesdays~
Please join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of Lenabella’s new show, The Imaginarium of One Woman’s Mind, on view and and for sale in the Loganberry Books Annex Gallery through March 2018. In honor of International Women's Day, we're also thrilled to host live music for the evening by members of Windsong, Cleveland's Feminist Chorus.

Lenabella is a Cleveland native and a painter who dabbles in more than one medium but has found her home in watercolors. She is inspired by her love of fairy tales, nature, the female anatomy, and the storybooks of her youth. She aims to make her art feel as if the view is peering into a story while also portraying the vulnerability, strength, and mystery of a woman’s mind.
