The Galleria at the YW is currently featuring a group art exhibition with more than 20 artists entitled Cactus and Clouds.
The exhibition just opened June 29 and will run through Aug. 27. An artist’s reception featuring DJ Buttafly will be held Friday, July 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition and reception can be found in the YWCA’s Frances McClelland Leadership Center (525 N. Bonita Ave.). Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Galleria invites artists they believe are doing something important, and thought provoking. Most, but not all, of the artists featured are women. The Galleria aims to explore themes that connect to their mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
