Reflecting Her Story presents a visual depiction of womanhood through the investigation of the female sense of self, identity, and physical appearance. Each artist blends introspective components to expose a woman's moments of extreme vulnerability, challenge her sense of empowerment, and contemplate situations she faces.
In a collaborative exhibition, Vivianne Carey, Caroline Rust, and Noor ul ain Zaib highlight a selection of artworks they each have created over the last few years. This body of work for exhibition is important as it is a visual depiction mirroring the intricacies of being a woman.
Underlying themes of the artists’ works blend introspective components exposing a woman's moments of extreme vulnerability, challenge her sense of empowerment, and contemplate situations that she faces. The common core elements include altars, adornment, sexuality, women’s effects, garments, gender roles and self-image. Yet, the portfolios of these artists, stand in contrast to one another as well.
Exhibits in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts are sponsored by O’Darby’s Fine Wine & Spirits.
Artful Bra Project is on display in the Perimeter Gallery throughout the duration of the Reflecting Her Story.
