Breaking the Veils

"Breaking the Veils: Women Artists from the Islamic World" was an amazing exhibit held in the historic Hattiesburg Train Depot. The mediums varied from oil to acrylic. From about 21 countries, 52 women were involved in presenting their artwork. Before I went to the exhibit I wasn't sure what to expect, but I did assume I would see neutral colors. However, when I arrived, the paintings were bursting with bright colors and were abstract. I enjoyed this exhibit because I was immersed in the female art world of the Islamic culture.
