Art Africa Colour Cure - Women in Art

The highly patronized event was picturesque. Art Africa also guaranteed that part of the proceeds from paintings sold at the exhibition will be donated to the Korle-bu Breast Cancer Surgical Unit.

Featured women artists were Betty Acquah, Dr Asabea Asare, Bernice Cooper, Nana Yaa Omane-Peprah, Victoria Adoe, Nyornuwofia Agorsor, Eba Ussher, Maitreyee Roy, Patti Blueh and Amerley Amartefio.

Some works were on large canvases, producing images that dwarfed the space around them, while others were smaller and invited close viewing. Various themes included: Abstract, Impressionism, Minimalism, The Body, Nature Personified, Womanhood, and Education among others.

Dignitaries and special guest present were: Nana Oye Bampoe-Addo (Former Minister of Gender, Childrenand Social Protection) attending on behalf of Lordina Mahama (Former First Lady of the Republic of Ghana and President of the Lordina Foundation); Maya Barakeh Amanor (President of the Global Women Development Network); Rita Appiah- Danquah (Clinical Psychologist, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Breast Cancer Surgical Unit); Bridgette Harrington (President of Igire Coffee by women); Madam Charlotte Osei (UN International Elections Commissioner and the former Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana); Kojo Choi (Founder and Chief Promoter of Art Africa) and many other dignitaries.

Event partners were PaySwitch, One Heart Africa Academy, Igire Coffee and Crystal Health & Beauty Center. The Colour Cure event was launched on 15th October and was open until 13th November 2022.
