The Circle of Women Artists.....brainchild of Margaret Garcia, internationally
'Chicana' artist, whose artwork hangs on the walls of corporate    
America, public institutions, museums, private collections, and a principal 
artist in
'The Chicano Collection'.....privately owned by Cheech Marin.

During a recent conversation with Margaret....she outlined the concept for 
bringing together artists, poets, musicians, print-makers and individuals with
little to no artistic create a stamp image that would be in support
of health, love, creativity, generosity, forgiveness, etc.

Her goal was, and is, to bring together individuals of varying backgrounds, in a 
grass roots support the Arts and the
'Positive' aspects of life.

ChimMaya invites you to the debut of this momentous exhibition of like-minded sync with the affirmative view of life.

Curator's Statement: (Call to Artists)

Our Federal Government's STIMULUS PACKAGE does not in any way acknowledge or support what truly does need to be stimulated, cultivated, and encouraged in our society and in the world.

I am inviting visual artists, poets, musicians, print-makers, or just people of culture to create a STAMP IMAGE. Each stamp will bring to life an affirmation which we desire to be STIMULATED OR CULTIVATED amongst us-for example, health, wealth, love, creativity, generosity, intuition, humility, faith, illumination, spirituality, forgiveness, intelligence, wisdom, courage, growth, tolerance, hope, vision, abundance, talent, music, kindness, fellowship, prosperity, etc.-whatever you are IN FAVOR OF...NOT AGAINST.

My hope is that the creation of these stamps will bring attention to what is truly important. This project was conceived by Margaret Garcia as part of the Circle of Women. The red postmark of the Circle of Women will be placed on each print.

THE CIRCLE OF WOMEN ARTISTS: The goal of Circle of Women Artists is to help fund a National Exhibit for Women.
