Trish Williams piece titled "Jubilation" is a part of the SAQA online exhibit "Always Women" curated by Virginia A. Spiegel who writes,
"The more I read, the more I realize there are universal experiences women share through the ages. It seems as though we do more than our fair share of waiting, but we're also always busy making a living, making friends, making a family, making peace with ourselves and our bodies, fighting our vices, embracing our pleasures, as well as experiencing great joys and great sadness. These artworks represent a small slice of our lives as women".
