October 26 – December 14, 2013
Reception: Saturday, October 26, 8-10 p.m.

 

First popularized by the Li'l Abner comic strip in 1937, Sadie Hawkins Day is an American folk event that celebrates role-reversal and female empowerment. Celebrations of this decades-old tradition continue to this day at high schools and college campuses around the country, where women choose their date to the annual dance of the same name. In honor of this kitschy and dated tradition, Leigh A.Arnold has curated "Sadie Hawkins", a group show of women artists whose work focuses on challenging traditional gender expectations, role-reversal, and Feminist/post-Feminist sensibilities. Participating artists include: The Bridge Club, Celia Eberle, Linda Finnell, Susan kae Grant, Margaret Meehan, Nina Schwanse, and Faith Wilding.
