Members of the Forbes Arts Society are celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD) as part
of an upcoming exhibition of mixed media work.

To coincide with IWD, the ‘Choose to Challenge’ exhibition will open at the Platypus Gallery in
Forbes on Friday 5 March 2021 and will run until Saturday 20 March 2021.

In keeping with the IWD 2021 theme, #ChooseToChallenge, the exhibition will feature
individual work and collaborative pieces that challenge gender bias and inequality.
Forbes Arts Society Chair, Dr Karen Ritchie said, “Through artwork, we can highlight and
celebrate women’s achievements – but also illustrate the gender inequity that still exists

The Platypus Gallery opening hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am until 2pm and Saturdays, 9am
until 1pm.

All artworks will be available for purchase.
