History Fort Lauderdale is proud to present “Visions of Women,” its first ever fine art exhibition from the National League of American Pen Women Fort Lauderdale Branch (NLAPW). This new exhibition will feature art from NLAPW award-winning artists/members Claudia Hafner, Judy Nunno, Phoenix, Donna Sallee, and Tammy Seymour, from April 4 – 30. A free meet and greet with the artists will take place on opening day, Thursday, April 4, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the New River Inn Museum of History building on History Fort Lauderdale’s campus.

“Visions of Women” is a profound exploration of art that illuminates the human experience, fires the imagination, and nurtures the soul. This exhibition is not only a celebration of artistic talent but also a tribute to the strength and creativity of accomplished women artists in our community.
During this special event, guests will have the opportunity to meet the artists in person, engage in insightful conversations about their works, and discover the stories behind each masterpiece. From powerful portraits to captivating landscapes, each artwork tells a unique story that resonates with the theme of empowering women and inspiring others.

In addition to meeting the artists, guests will enjoy light refreshments and can explore the other exhibits at History Fort Lauderdale, including the “Women Trailblazers” exhibit, which highlights influential female role models in our community.
