Exhibition Title: Women's Work

Description: 
These artists, working in a variety of mediums, create alternative views or counterpoints to some of the persistent cultural measures of women’s value to society through their upending of conventions or outright production of their inverse.  Their approaches address gender identity, activism, and resistance to cultural stereotypes as they communicate new possibilities through humor and visual invention.  From the embrace of soft and tactile materials to the adoption of technology, their explorations of photography, sculpture, painting, social practice, and video remain accessible and innovative. 

Exhibiting Artists:
Chesley Antoinette, Jessie Budd, Colette Copeland, Rachel Muldez, Courtney Nicole, Victoria Oliva, and Libby Rowe.

SP/N Gallery hours:
Sunday - Monday: Closed
Tuesday - Wednesday: 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
