Each year on March 8 the world celebrates important women who have shaped history during International Women’s Day. In conjunction with the event, this great gallery has launched an Art Fair that includes creative talent you don’t want to miss. What’s the buzz?

Located in New York City, One Art Space is quickly rising in the gallery world as a go-to destination for premier artistic talent. That trend continues this month during the gallery’s “International Women’s Day Art Fair.” Although the gallery hosted a beautiful event last night, there remains ample opportunity to both view the art and mingle with the artists.

One Art Space will also host a closing event on March 16, which coincides with Tribeca Art Night (TAN). Artists included in the exhibition are Leah Lopez, Sarah Sager, Caroline Absher, Shenna Vaughn, Maria Owen, Nancy Pantirer, Peach Jin Tao, Annelise Capossela, Rosangela Bombieri, Allison Kroll, Lulu Dong, Ceceilia Ruiz, Silvia Aviles, Ayako Bando, Nina Kovalenko, Keli Lucas, CJ Collins, and Nana An. The exhibition was curated by Frank Giella.

Discussing the event and its inspiration, the gallery writes, “International Women’s Day first began in New York City in 1911 and has historically been utilized to call attention to the many hardships and oppressions faced by women throughout the world. The Suffragettes founded International Women’s Day to unite and empower women in their fight for equality and to this day, it continues to inspire individuals to persevere in the face of adversity, celebrate powerful women, and organize direct action to further our progress as a society towards the abolishment of gender inequality.

“We support the modern-day Suffragettes of the International Women’s Day Campaign in promoting this holiday and their ten core values of justice, dignity, hope, equality, collaboration, tenacity, appreciation, respect, empathy, and forgiveness.

“This year, we celebrate by presenting an exhibition in honor of the monumental achievements of women throughout history. The International Women’s Day Art Fair features a diverse, international collection of talented, female-identifying artists of varying ages.”
