The Ballot and the Brush: Celebrating Women’s Suffrage through Art


Fri 03-06-20


Sun 05-31-20


In a continued celebration of local artists and in honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, the Beaches Museum is proud to present the work of Sara Conca, Tiffany Manning and Princess Simpson.

Sara Conca is a contemporary abstract artist.  Her creation of a fresh new aquatic mystical series involving natural mixed media, raw pigment colors, mica flakes and natural crystals is intended to “instantly immerse the viewer into the visual and emotional energies” that she has devoted  to each piece. 

Tiffany Manning is an acrylic painter whose drive to create is fueled by a lifetime fascination with energy, specifically, “the way that it moves through people to form the connective tissue that weaves our world together.”

Princess Simpson Rashid is an abstract painter and printmaker.  Her current body of work explores the relationship between color, perception and symbolism.  She is a breast cancer survivor and feels her more recent work has been matured and tempered by that experience. 

This exhibit will bring together the diverse backgrounds, techniques and inspirations of the artists in a coherent celebration of women’s suffrage. 

The exhibit will be on display from March 6, 2020 to May 31, 2020.

Please join us Friday, March 6 for an Exhibit Opening Night Reception for this exhibit at 6:00 p.m. in the main building of the Beaches Museum.  This event is free to Museum members with a suggested $5 donation for non-members.  For further information please call (904) 241-5657.
