That happened in 2008 when Hudson County Cultural Affairs presented Doris Caçoilo the Hudson County Leadership in the Arts Award for her work with _gaia Studio. It's no surprise that Caçoilo deserves this award. Through _gaia, she's been able to organize women artists around women's issues, activism, and support local artists.
Strange to think that just ten years ago, _gaia was just a small group of women in a basement, and now, it's grown to dozens of women, exhibiting work locally and on the road, from Brooklyn to Cyprus, and helping to bring a community together through art.
Happy TEN, _gaia! Here's to TEN MORE!
See you later, INSTIGATOR.
