In our life experiences we are taught to hide that strength or tuck it away. And yet, our ability to connect, understand others vulnerability and maintain relationships endures. We want to acknowledge and celebrate this strength because it comes in all different forms.

Plus “Wildlife Watch” in the Main Space. Barbara's paintings and drawings explore our interconnectedness with nature, wildlife and all animal. She has long sketched animals for the Woodland Park Zoo and understands the unique characteristics and habits of animals.
