LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- All-female art exhibit, Grace & Ritual, will bring together masters and new talent to celebrate the impact of uniquely feminine characteristics in diverse lives.  Opening May 10, 2013, the exhibit will be aesthetic musings, powerful statements and platform for discussion to examine the personal, professional, creative and cultural manifestations of the words "grace" and "ritual," in a woman's everyday life. 


Participating artists include Sheila Metzner, Beata Konarska, Diva Zappa, Lizzy Waronker, Yoshimi Ohtani, Sawa, Jana Cruder, Diana Beltran Herrera, Naomi White, Gina Martynova and nearly 40 other accomplished and promising artists from around the world. In a compelling documentation of femininity, Grace & Ritual reflects upon the progressive societal shift of a woman's position in workplace and family environments through the influence of the words themselves.

"The phrase Grace & Ritual came to embody a uniquely feminine and dignified way of approaching professional situations, interpersonal dynamics and creativity," remarked Amanda White, partner at iam8bit and curator of the show. "The more I meditated on this idea, the clearer it became to me that this philosophy encapsulates a uniquely female way of existing in the world."

Grace & Ritual will be on exhibit at iam8bit's gallery located on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood. The show will open Friday, May 10, and run for three weeks.
