Women of Appalachia Project™

WOAP Fine Art Exhibition

On view in our Sauber Gallery January 13 – March 19, 2023

We believe all women are capable, courageous, creative, and inspired. 
The Women of Appalachia Project was created to address discrimination directed at women from the Appalachian region by encouraging participation from women artists of diverse backgrounds, ages, and experiences to come together, to embrace the stereotype, to show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her. 


Miyuki Akai Cook: Artist and Associate Professor of Fibers at Marshall University

Alison Helm: Artist, Professor of Art, and Coordinator of Sculpture at West Virginia University College of Creative Arts

Margaret Curtis: Feminist Painter, taught painting at The School of Visual Arts in New York, served on the board of both The Flood Gallery in Asheville, NC, and The Upstairs Gallery in Tryon, NC.
