“J. Mane Gallery is pleased to present its 3rd All Women International Online Juried Art Exhibition. Women artists have been making art throughout history, however their work, when compared to their male counterparts, tends to be overlooked and undervalued. Women artists are often faced with challenges due to gender biases in the fine art world. Therefore, we are honoring women artists.” – J. Mane Gallery

Our objective is to offer opportunities to participate in art experiences and connect with fellow artists….. art competitions and exhibitions, providing artists worldwide exposure through featured artists opportunities in the gallery.” – J. Mane Gallery
On the evening of the 7th November 2020, I found myself sitting in the UK, watching the TV and seeing events unfolding in the Trump – Biden US elections. I picked up a pencil and paper and started documenting what I saw. ‘4 hours in History’ is an observational piece of art collecting together the protests (from all parties), interviews and quotes from the day.
At the time, I was sharing lockdown with my Mum with a very limited supply of cotton cloth to stitch on. The old adage ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ was certainly true for me. After a quick rummage through the airing cupboard I discovered a well worn cotton pillowcase to embroider onto. I hope it won’t be missed.
