WEST ORANGE, NJ — The West Orange Arts Council will present "The Future is Feminist" from July 10 to July 27, at the West Orange Arts Center, located at 551 Valley Road, with an artist's reception to be held on Saturday, July 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
"The Future is Feminist" is an exhibit of mixed media work by local female artists who imagine and explore a future that's inclusive of all races, sexualities, gender expressions, sizes, abilities and creeds. Artists include Marina Carreira, Suzy Carreira, Doris Cacoilo, Christine Da Cruz, Kween Moore, Paula Neves, Luisa Pinzon Romero, Lillian Ribeiro, Jillian Rock, Danielle Scott and Shannon Stoia.

"The Future is Feminist" has been featured at several New Jersey galleries before coming to the West Orange Arts Center. It will be on display until Saturday, July 27. Gallery hours are Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment.
