According to the gallery’s announcement, the exhibit features 15 photographs of women by Patty Locklear Photography and biographies written by Elizabeth Ward.

”Women of Tidewater #WINNING 2019 celebrates women as inspiring, positive role models who have broken down barriers and stereotypes, and who have transformed themselves into the beautiful, authentic souls they are now – kind, generous, gracious, humble and helpful,” Locklear said.
