The Illuminations Project is a decade-long collaboration between two artists, feminists and friends. Shary Boyle and Emily Vey Duke’s visionary call-and-response forges connections between subversion and joy, drawing and writing. It is an exquisitely rendered road map through the chaos of growing up female, fearless and hungry for meaning. The Illuminations Project was published by Oakville Galleries.
