Women’s Work

December 8, 2016 - January 8, 2017

Exhibition Dates: December 8, 2016-January 8 2017

Reception Date: Thursday, December 8 • 6-8pm • Artist Talk at 6:30pm

Women’s Work is an exhibition that celebrates women artists who embrace womanhood and the power of women. The phrase “women’s work” refers to “the work that is believed to be exclusively the domain of women and associates particular tasks with the female gender.”

Moving beyond this stigma, female artists Naomi Christianson, Julie Dzikiewicz, Lizzy Lunday, and Fierce Sonia challenge the traditional role of women. They do this not only in their professions as artists but also in their unique artistic styles, subject matter, and mediums such as oil, encaustic printed paper, and acrylic. This exhibition was curated by Target Gallery intern, Genevieve Keillor.

This exhibition is on view in Site 3 in the Torpedo Factory Art Center on the third floor.
