Spectrum: EXPLORING GENDER IDENTITY

On View: Sept. 27 – Nov. 18, 2018

Opening reception Thursday Sept. 27, 5pm – 8pm

A group show exploring the very complicated question, what is gender, anyway? Gender is very different from sex. Gender isn’t what’s between your legs, it’s what’s between your ears. In other words, gender is how you think and feel about yourself, and how you behave or express yourself in the world. Because people have all sorts of thoughts and feelings about their genders, people have all sorts of gender identities.

WOMEN ARTISTS: DECONSTRUCTING THE STATUS QUO

On View: Jan. 24 - Mar. 17, 2019

Opening reception: Thursday Jan. 24, 5pm - 7pm

Despite encouraging signs of women’s improved status and visibility in the art world, inequality persists. With this show we intend to shine a light on underrecognized regional female artists and raise the awareness of their work and illuminating narratives they offer on the world we live in. We hope this show can help level the playing field for women artists in the region.
