ANNOUNCING FALL 2013 SCHEDULE
We are women–strong, fierce, independent women. The exhibit will attempt to reclaim our bodies, sexuality, derogatory words, and feminine mystique as our own. Using materials that allude to femininity and our own personal experiences and ideals as the subject matter, we want to create a bold statement on what feminism really is and how it relates to every human being, male or female, today. We want to dissolve the gross misconceptions on what it is to be a woman and claim it back as our own. The show will feature works by Vanessa Mayor, Devin Kelly, Kelli McAdams, Sydney Moore, Natalie Suarez, Casey Wooster, and Shaina Condrey. The exhibit will be open from August 26-September 9 with an opening reception on August 29 from 7-9 pm.
In this exhibition by artist Andrea Sarcos, the artist will present a series of works that deal with the theme of decay. Using old black and white film photography and more modern digital photography, the series traces the interactions between environment and subject, with relations in domestic life and isolation. The mystery of what’s been left behind will make viewers questions their past histories. The exhibit will be open from September 13-September 26 with an opening reception on September 19 from 7-9 pm.
Exhibiting color, emotions, and memories shown through the lens of a printmaker.

Tell Me Who I Am
An exhibit which critiques and questions cultural and societal expectations that one was burdened with since birth such as gender expectations, economic expectations, and ethnic expectations. The works in this exhibit will revolve around the artist’s individual and personal struggles with these cultural and societal expectations of who they should be and how they should act. The artworks will rebel against these expectations of their identities by mirroring them and then boldly confronting them. Through drawing, photography, and printmaking the artists Midrene Lamy, Sia Ngauja, and Samantha Greek, will explore how to go against the expected identities given to us by our society and ethnic cultures. The exhibit will be open from November 2-November 15 with an opening reception on November 7 from 7-9 pm.
The sense of isolation is not one that is separate from the human experience. We are creatures who waiver between the fear of and the desire of seclusion. We chronically experience periods of exile and seclusions, whether by choice of by force of the entities around us. There is something about the human spirit that craves to be discovered, but what holds us back from finding it is this: we have been quarantined. Featuring works from Zac Thompson, Dounia Bendris, and Hannah Dwyer the exhibit will be open from November 19-December 13 with an opening reception on November 21 from 7-9 pm.
