Opening Reception: Saturday, July 12th, 7-10PM, Exhibition July 6th - August 11th, 2013
Arc gallery presents Sweet & Subversive: Contemporary Feminist Craft, an exhibition that ironically appropriates feminine stereotypes to expand the discourse of contemporary feminism. The exhibition is based on the subversive craft movement and cupcake feminism, a trend that plays on the ideals of the 50's housewife. The artwork is simultaneously cheeky and critical to convey new thoughts on the female perspective. This group exhibition features both local and national artists including the work of Ellen Greene, Mary O'Brien, Forrest Solis, Cait Spera, Shalene Valenzuela, & Jennifer Weigel. Exhibition continues through August 10, 2013.
Sweet and Subversive is hosted by the Women's Caucus for Art Curatorial
Residency. The goal of the residency is to expand exhibitions on a subject matter that embodies the mission of the Women's Caucus for Art (WCA): To create community through art, education and social activism.
Arc Gallery supports the making of quality art in all media, provides a
