“Yes Ma’am,” an art exhibit billed as “a feminist experience featuring the work of female artists living in Georgia,” will take place May 28 from noon to 4 p.m. in Atlanta’s Historic West End. It will be held at 708 Lawton St., where a group of young professionals and students have turned part of their home into a walk-through art gallery.

Amanda Norris and Hannah Alexander are two recent Georgia College & State University graduates who just moved to Atlanta this year and immediately fell head-over-heels in love with the city. They are planning, curating and promoting the show.

“We’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while,” they said in a news release. “We love feminism, we love art and we can’t wait to share the artwork made by these talented women.”

Donations are encouraged and most artwork will be for sale. All proceeds will go to Partnership Against Domestic Violence, Georgia’s first and largest nonprofit working to end intimate, power-based violence. If you purchase artwork, you will have to pick it up after the gallery closes at 4 p.m.
