Nature of Women all Artists
We are proud to present The Nature of Women, featuring 9 sensational artists whose works explore the ways in which women relate to Mother Nature. These works weave together the human psyche, the female identity, and our place in nature, revealing the interdependence between us and our planet. Perpetually evolving, growing, protecting, cultivating, expanding, and unifying: women are the threads of our social fabric, and we have the power and the responsibility to save our planet.

Giving Back to Mother Nature
In efforts to not only declare change, but also become the change, ART SHE SAYS will be donating a portion of its profits to The Nature Conservancy, one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. Founded in the U.S. through grassroots action in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has over one million members and has protected more than 119,000,000 acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide.
The donations from this exhibition will go towards The Nature Conservancy’s ‘Mangrove Market Women’ initiative, which aims to create long-term solutions for mangrove forests and the women of Papua New Guinea through sustainability, educational opportunities, and economic development in their communities.
Why is this Important?
Restoring biodiversity to our Earth is crucial for our ecosystem. Greater species diversity ensures natural sustainability for all life forms. Healthy mangrove systems act as critical nursery areas that help support local fisheries and overall marine biodiversity, as well as offer tremendous protection to coastal communities against storm surge and coastal erosion. Mangrove forests also store huge quantities of carbon, thereby mitigating further greenhouse gas emissions.
Women’s education is another key solution for a more sustainable planet. In order to curb the rising population of the human population, which by 2100 is set to be 11 billion people, enabling young girls to complete an education at school is vital. Extending access to education will create better economic opportunities and enable broader careers prospects, thus slowing the population growth rate.
