A local group dedicated to empowering women internationally and in Victoria is celebrating International Women’s Day with an art sale.

The Didi Society is hosting an art sale and exhibit on March 5 and 6. Works from 30 local artists will be on display and encompass a range of artistic endeavour. It will also include a variety of mediums, including jewelry, painting, photography, fabric art and ceramics.

“We’re very excited to be hosting this event,” said society founder Julia Norman. “It’s an opportunity for these talented artists to gain more exposure and to allow them to provide concrete support to the cause of women.”

The event comes two days before the United Nation’s International Women’s Day and is themed to celebrate the day and the cause of women worldwide.

A portion of all proceeds from the sale of the art will be donated to the Didi Society.

The art exhibit and sale kicks off with a special reception on March 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Belfry Theatre. Tickets for the reception are $25 and are available through the Belfry Theatre.

The exhibit runs on March 5 and 6 between  noon and 5 p.m. and admission is free.
