Many people have an image of an Appalachian woman, and they look down on her. The Women of Appalachia Project encourages participation from women 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.

The mission of the WOA events is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to this region as a source of inspiration with the intention that this gathering of artwork and spoken word will prove to be greater than the sum of its parts as visual and verbal themes emerge through the intertwining of the artwork and language. Hopefully, this confluence of ideas and inspirations will empower other regional female artists and the surrounding community so that they might continue the narrative.

We believe that all women are capable, courageous, creative and inspired.

We tell our stories through our art.

Please join us this Winter/Spring for our eighth annual event! We are women of diverse backgrounds, ages and talents, pleased with the opportunity to share our creative spirits, our stories and our music with each other, and with you.

Kari Gunter-Seymour, Founder/Curatorr
Woman of Appalachia

Sponsored by Ohio University's Multicultural Center and Women's Center; ARTS/West, and
the PVG Artisans.
