By Presidential proclamation, March is Women’s History Month. To celebrate the achievements of women in the arts, Sperryville gallerist Jackie Bailey Labovitz of Cottage Curator is featuring the works of 23 regionally and nationally recognized female artists — six of whom make art right here in Rappahannock County.

According to Bailey Labovitz, who is herself a talented wildlife photographer, in 2016 the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) asked a simple question on social media: “Can you name five women artists?” Thus began a social media campaign known by the hashtag “#5WomenArtists.”
