Pretty Girls: a feminist perspective through art is a collaborative project celebrating over 10 local artists and their viewpoints on artistic, intellectual and political feminist influences. The opening reception will be held Friday, June 10th from 5pm-10pm at Gallery 80808 Vista Studios. Witness an exciting range of artistic interpretations from performance art, music, film installation, sculpture, traditional medium and…human canvas! The exhibition does not embrace a traditional definition of feminism, but showcases through diversity of ideas that the perception of a fixed feminist point of view has changed.
If you miss the opening reception there will be studio hours from 10-6 pm Saturday and 12-5 pm Sunday. We look forward to exploring the feminine identity through forms of art with our community and friends. This feminist art event brings attention to the importance of providing a safe environment for women in crisis by donating a portion of the proceeds to The Women’s Shelter of Columbia, SC. Please stay-tuned on Facebook for further updates and details of the opening reception.
