The Mission Hill Artists Collective will present “A Room of Your Own,” a community art exhibit inspired by writer Virginia Woolf, at the Parker Hill Branch library in November.

Community members will display 14-by-14-by-7-inch “rooms,” decorated in whatever way they feel supports their creativity. The title of the exhibition is taken from Woolf’s 1929 essay, “A Room of One’s Own,” in which she discusses a woman’s need for independence and her own creative space, according to a flyer advertising the show.

“The contents of the ‘room’ can be abstract or figurative like a dollhouse room. The message of the show is this: every artist needs a creative space of his or her own,” show organizer Joann McCracken told the Gazette.

The show is available to all artists, young and old, beginners and professionals of Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain and surrounding neighborhoods, McCracken said.

According to the flyer, all genders are welcome to participate. Boxes must be reserved and picked up by Oct. 4. The show will open at the Parker Hill library, 1497 Tremont St., on Nov. 6. For more information, email missionhillartists@yahoo.com.
