Paintings, mixed media, and digital art from Dr. Belan's Divine Ladies series are currently on view at Goddess I AM Healing and Art Center, 600 Goodlette Road N in Naples. The series feature female divinities from world mythologies that span thousands of years, from prehistoric to current times. Belan hopes that the universal beauty evinced by these divine women can serve as an inspiration for women and girls, and help buttress their self-esteem.

Together with 40 other international artists, Belan is also currently exhibiting in II Premio Inernacional Don Quijote de la Mancha at Crisolart Galleries in Barcelona, Spain. Curated and organized by the Museum of the Americas in Doral, Florida, the exhibition is on view from March 26 through April 17, 2014.
