Throughout history, women have come together and joined their voices to improve the lives of everyone. From the right to vote, equal pay, maternity leave, reproductive rights to domestic violence, women have engaged in peaceful campaigns to raise awareness of issues and to change society. While many great strides have been made, recent movements have shown us that many more strides are still needed.
Though Her Eyes, In Her Hands was initiated by YWCA – Muskoka to develop a greater awareness of the strength, diversity and talent of local women artists and the stories being told through their hands. “It is our desire that women of all ages are encouraged to use their experiences and talents to express their own voice,” says Serena West, one of the organizers of the exhibition. “We hope that we inspire others, of all genders, to use their creative expression as a way to explore ideas, feelings and experiences.”
One of the goals of this exhibition was to gather female artists in Muskoka and encourage collaboration. “We also want to celebrate the joy and freedom that we can now enjoy as women artists,” remarks Serena. “Grateful for those who forged a path for us to follow, we see our opportunity and responsibility to carry the torch and light the way for the coming generations.”
Twenty women are participating in the show. Their work demonstrates the range of their personal experiences as well as differences in artistic styles and media.
“The women in the group look forward to having this show at the Chapel Gallery because it has a long standing history of supporting local artists. A hub of art talks, shows and workshops, it is the ideal place to come together to celebrate women in the arts,” explains Serena. “Many of the women in the show have had other shows at the Chapel Gallery, however, now they are coming together with louder voices, compelling awareness during March, which is Women’s History Month and also marks International Women’s Day on March 8.”
Through Her Eyes, In Her Hands with a public reception on Saturday, February 16 from 1pm until 3pm. There will be a Grand Reception held on Friday, March 8 from 6pm-8pm to celebrate International Women’s Day. The exhibition continues at the Chapel Gallery until March 16.

Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.

Donovan Woods’ new album is a study in contrasts, as one would expect from its name: Both Ways. That push-and-pull, especially in relationships, has long been Woods’ stock in trade. As the lead track of Both Ways, “Good Lover” unfolds with acoustic instruments and Woods’ quietly compelling delivery –not what a listener might expect from the title alone. That masterful perspective has led to nominations for the Polaris Prize and the Juno Awards. In addition, his single “What Kind of Love Is That?” climbed to No. 1 on the CBC Top 20 Chart, while his catalogue has accrued nearly 45 million streams.
