Creating Lifetime Friendships

YOUR GIFT WILL HELP

Women’s Wisdom ART adds an immense cultural richness to the Sacramento community, and we ardently hope that the arts supporters in our community will join us in our effort.

Current Women’s Wisdom Board Chair, Ali Lichtenstein states, “Women’s Wisdom ART opened in 1991 and as of 2017, celebrates its 26th year of promoting the art of women through art instruction (classes), and through art shows and sales of their art. Over 2000 women have benefited from Women’s Wisdom ART since 1991. We currently serve 30 regular participants each year. Our goal is to expand our participant numbers with continuing outreach to more diverse populations of need within the Sacramento and surrounding communities. We are establishing strong community partners to assist with this goal. Our Board of Directors is also committed to the goal of adequately paid staff, small teacher stipends, and expanding our Board.”

Cover art by Nayyirah Robinson, “Reflections” Mixed Media

Reflecting on the past 25 years, Women’s Wisdom Art has put together an anthology which includes poems written by those who’ve become members of the Wisdom community since inception. The title of the Wisdom Poetry Anthology is “Lift It Tenderly“. We know that over 2,000 women have attended the programs of Women’s Wisdom ART and we have included poets from the very first year, 1991, and poems from the most recent 2016 attendees. And, like a fan unfolding, a plethora of poets between those years.

We of Wisdom Art are living testimony to the truth of these words: Art is the primary survival skill of the human spirit. This book includes the work of 78 poets and spans 25 years of women overcoming poverty, homelessness, ill health, grief, violence and abuse through the power of art. Together, these women have become a community of support and creative energy whose art empowers them to give shape to their lives with courage, skill and hope. We include as many photos of the poets as we could find and an eight page insert of color plates of their visual art.

This book celebrates a chorus of voices, transparent with simplicity, honesty, and courage. Many of these poems are the very first the writers had attempted. Others have written poetry all their lives and received public recognition and prizes for their work. We invite you to purchase a copy of your own or as a gift for someone special in your life.
