Opening Reception for Brenda Thomson

March 5 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Trox Gallery will host an Opening Reception for Brenda Thomson’s exhibition, “Sacred Feminine” on Friday, March 5 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
“Sacred Feminine” will be on display from March 3 – 27, 2021.
The “Scared Feminine” Series began a few years ago as I was pondering on how to artistically express the “Me Too Movement” and how I felt about it. I chose to create women of all colors, religions, and sexual orientations, expressing a variety of empowering emotions. My goal was to produce images focusing on the positive attributes’ strong women share: confidence, reverence, faithfulness, respect and strength. Each piece is named after an emotion or a woman who has served as a mentor in my life. After losing my mother at age eighteen, I am mindful of all the women in my life who have blessed me and helped shape who I am today – there is a piece of them in each drawing, sketch, or painting I create. We all have a woman in our lives who has helped us build our strength. “Sacred Feminine” is about honoring them.
My goal is to inspire other women to embrace their sacredness. To speak out fearlessly. To honor the feminine energy we are given. I hope others will connect with a painting from this series, recognize a particular attribute in themselves, or be thankful for the women that embodied strength in their own lives. We are all sisters.
