Woman as Color, Light and Form: An Artscape Gallery Network Exhibit curated by Myrtis Bedolla and co-curator Jessica Stafford-Davis

Opening Reception Saturday, July 27, 2013, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Artists’ Talk August 11, 2013, 2:00pm – 4:00pm

July 18, 2013 – August 31, 2013

In challenging the notion of the feminine archetype, artists embrace and reach beyond the boundaries of the female form to express the essence of a woman, figuratively, conceptually and metaphorically.

As Color, alluring imagery stretches the imagination and explores a woman’s sexual and intellectual power. As Light, provocative photographs portray a woman’s physical strength and ubiquitous presence in nature. As Form, moving two and three dimensional objects, emblematic of the ethereal qualities of a woman, reveal the complexities, convictions and intuitiveness of the feminine expressed as the divine; a ritualistic-based video serves as testimony to one woman’s personal journey of renewal, and others speak to healing, identity, memory and transformation in tableaus that embody a woman’s unbridled spirit.

The artists express their artistic voices through installations, paintings, photography, prints, and videos.

Featuring: Sondra Arkin, Maya Freelon Asante, David Carlson, Phylicia Ghee, Michael Gross, Nora Howell, Ada Pinkston, Edwin Remsburg, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, Rachael Rotenberg, Amy Sherald, Mary Walker, and Sigrid Vollerthun, along with Sondheim Semi-finalists: A. Moon and Adejoke Tugbiyele.
