Released from the city of Tavares:
Art, music, and words can transport you to new and amazing places – whether a beautiful poem, a favorite song, or a few lines of thought-provoking poetry. Come and be transported by the art, music, and prose created by the women of the Orlando Winter Park branch of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) during the exhibit presented by the City of Tavares, Tavares City Hall, 201 E. Main Street. Artwork and poetry created by these talented ladies will be on display through May 5.
The public is also invited to a reception to be held on Friday, March 21 from 5:30 until 7:30 PM. The evening will be filled with music, art and poetry, including demonstrations by the artists. Refreshments will be served.
The NLAPW (or Pen Women, as they are often called), was formed in 1897 by a group of professional women writers as a means for them to connect and support one another in their field. The National Press Club provided a forum for male writers and journalists to connect, but at the time women members were not permitted, so the ladies created their own organization. It quickly grew to include professional artists and composers. Past members include several influential and well known women including Eleanor Roosevelt and Pearl S. Buck.
The Orlando Winter Park branch of NLAPW was formed in 1957 and currently includes many award winning central Florida artists, writers and composers.
