March is not only distinguished by the resurrection of Shamrock Shakes and deceptively hollow chocolate bunnies, but is the page on your calendar graced by Women’s History Month. Riding on the current number-one small-talk topic of presidential elections (Super Tuesday, anyone?), the theme this year is “Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government.” But regardless of theme, the month is an opportunity to highlight female triumph, success and creation in all dimensions of life — including that within the realm of art.

In concert with Women’s History Month, La Bodega Gallery is presenting VENUS on March 5, with opening night from 5 to 10 p.m., and will continue until March 16. The art exhibit will be an all-female event, highlighting the talent and achievements of artists not only from California, but throughout the nation and world. The exhibit collection is composed of artwork from an extensive number of individuals including Thao Huynh, BreAnne Custodio, Paulette Jo, Junk & PO and Coco Miller. The art media vary just as much as the individuals participating: oil, watercolor, bronze, photography, etc. The event will also feature performance art by Fusion Creation’s Lidia Ochoa of live body painting.

Even the music at the event will be by emerging female musicians. There will be live performances by Gabriela & La Buena Onda along with vocalist and DJs Queendom Tribe Music. All ages are welcome and admission is free, so do schedule a weekend or a day of spring break to spend some time admiring some art with your favorite women.
