Art Opening for Artist Joi Whiley entitled: "Pink, Painted, Prayer: Expressions of Art, faith, and Joy." The opening and reception will honor “Women Who Inspire” and include an Art Talk of the personal story of how God has shaped Joi’s Whiley art career and artistic practice.

It’s a new day! This the day that Lord has made let us REJOYCE and be glad in it! Months ago, we were all making plans in very uncertain times. This exhibit was inspired by Women’s History Month. I was doing a collection of work inspired by my art “Shero” and honor women outstanding women of Louisiana. But there was change. Change is all around us and we all have stories about how the pandemic has changed us. God used this time to transform my life, push me into my studio, and give a renewed sense of purpose to my art. My Husband, Joseph, and I have been called to build our creative practice and art business together. Our mission is to use this exhibition and coordinated programs to create, enrich and inspire. In addition, we would like to still take the opportunity to celebrate the many brilliant women who have us find our way and grow. We believe that although it is not women’s history month, women deserve to be celebrated all year long. Indeed, it is a day, and we have much to celebrate!

Come meet, hear her inspiring story, and see the works of Joi!
