A matriarchy is a social organizational form in which the mother or oldest female heads the family. Descent and relationship are determined through the female line. Most anthropologists hold that there are no known societies that are unambiguously matriarchal, but some authors believe that exceptions are possible, some of them in the past. 
GRIFFIN FINE ART  proudly presents the work of five outstanding women artists. As they have created incredible artworks  from that intangible, primordial space that is the spirit and essence of  female expression.  They visually reflect upon the stories of life in the nurturing tradition that is uniquely feminine and fundamentally, matriarchal.  
"This exhibition promises to be a feast for the eyes and nourishment for the soul".
