    Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

    Who does she think she is?

    “In every artist there is a touch of audacity without which no talent is conceivable.”

    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    (I apologize to all of my non-local readers for this hyper-local post.)

    I recently heard from a woman named Lianne Raymond, who invited me to a documentary-screening called, ‘Who Does She Think She Is?’

    Here’s a quick blurb about the documentary:

    “In a half-changed world, women are often forced to choose: Mothering or working? Your children’s well being or your own? Responsibility or self expression? Who Does She Think She Is?, a documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll (who was also behind the Academy Award winning film Born Into Brothels), features five fierce women who refuse to choose. The artists include sculptors, painters, drummers and more.  Through their lives, we explore some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art.”

    Details about the event can be found here: http://lianne.typepad.com/womenart/

    The screening is being held at the Courtenay Museum on Sunday, November 22nd, and admission is $5.00.  I believe you have to purchase the tickets online by visiting the link above.  Before the screening there will be an opportunity to meet a variety of local female artists who are combining motherhood with creativity.  (I’ll have a table with my Grateful Mama books on display; fitting beautifully into the ‘Who Does She Think She Is?’ theme!)

    Seating is limited to 50 people, so if you’re interested, don’t wait to get your ticket!
