In celebration of Women’s History Month, The Gallery at Hillside Square will welcome "40 Over 40 — 'I Am,'" contemporary portraits of 40 women over age 40 by photographer Celestina Ando.

The exhibition will run March 1 through March 31. The opening reception is Saturday, March 12 at 6 p.m.

"I was 40 years old when I decided to become a full-time entrepreneur and open my photography studio. Therefore, this is truly a passion and celebration project of mine," Ando said in a gallery press release.

Ando won the Gold prize for Best Photographer for Best of Essex 2019-2021, and received silver merit, placing sixth with a portrait in the International Portrait Masters competition in 2021.
