About the Event
Already HER, Celebrating Women’s History Month
“Style & Grace” ArtRepublic x Arlo Wynwood Exhibition
Women’s History Month is about celebrating women’s contributions; contributions that were once omitted from history. Women’s history month gives us an opportunity to get a more complete picture of the past to better info and build our future.
Our collective works to create places and spaces for women to thrive, to open doors of opportunity and to celebrate each other. Women are intuitive, intellectual creatures. By supporting each other we can live our fullest life, develop an abundance mentality, an authentic voice and leave our fingerprint on the world.
Please join us as we commune with the women artists and subjects of the Style and Grace exhibition to celebrate a woman’s power, strength, and true voice.

Jade Lilly, human rainbow, who’s ultimate goal is to spread light and bring beauty through colors. Jade is a visionary photographer and artist that is dedicated to creating a safe and welcoming space for people to express themselves and be vulnerable through her work. With over 30 of her images featured in prestigious publications like Vogue and activations in Afropunk, Jade has established herself as a creative force to be reckoned with. In addition to her success in the art world, she has also given lectures for major brands like Apple and Leica.
Tierra Armstrong is a Miami-based painter and muralist. Her paintings depict figures in sacred moments that transcend space and time. She uses religious iconography – colors as symbolism and light emanations – to articulate the divinity of Black bodies. Her work often explores the balanced duality of feminine and masculine energies irrespective of gender. Influenced by her experiences in Mexico City and Chicago, she draws inspiration for her murals from the self-determinism of communities of color. Tierra and her mother are the subjects in Jade Lilly’s “Style and Grace” piece.
