A bit about Barbara: 
"In my former life I was a Professor of Psychology (statistics, research design, perception) at CSUN for 25 years and belly dancer (and costume maker) for 16 of those years. Currently I am an artist, consultant in statistics and research design, co-author of the most popular multivariate statistics book, traveler and swing dancer (on hold until virus permits). I’ve been in multiple juried local, national, and international group shows since 2004, with some prizes along the way. Solo shows (some shared) include those at the late, lamented, Orlando Gallery; Council Gallery of the NCJWLA (National Council of Jewish Women, Los Angeles); Madrid Theatre; and Artist Alley at Calabasas Tennis and Swim Center. I was twice invited to exhibit at Ontario International Airport. Current organizations include Collage Artists of America (website and Zoom manager and soft techie), California Art League, Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art, LELA (Zoom secretary), and Encaustic Art Institute."

SCWCA's  Position on Equality
SCWCA’s mission is to create community through art, education, and social activism. Hate and bigotry have no place in our organization. We condemn these racist, violent acts in the strongest possible terms and encourage our members to do so as well. We stand in solidarity with all those who suffer from fear, harassment, and violence.

Part of our mission as an organization is activism, so we stand with the Black Lives Matter and Stop AAPI Hate movements because we believe that all humans are connected.
