Women and Witchcraft is a curated exhibition by Ella Mittas as she brings together the works of 11 talented female artists. These women have a story to tell and energy to share - together they connect to celebrate the diversity of female expression through creativity!

Set in the grounds of the beautiful Abbotsford Convent, St Helliers Gallery, seems to be the ideal setting for this celebration of the feminine. The gallery space is located on the ground floor of the main convent building across from Cam's, forming a natural meeting place and hub for artistic activity. The gallery welcomes over 2000 visitors each week!

Women and Witchcraft combines an art show and a series of Beltane Pagan inspired dinners by Ella Mittas, a chef, cooking instructor and host of sell-out pop-up dinners. Passionate and unpretentious about her food, this is her first ever curated exhibition as a combined event. The setup is an altar honouring the Beltane season using rich greens and colours reflecting the spring flowers. It incorporates a candle signifying the Beltane fire and fertility symbols from nature like horns, seeds and flowers and a mother goddess symbol.
