Exhibit Title: Faces of Femme

Exhibit Description: In 2015, a handful of women, including myself, conceived Feminine Dominance, an art collective based in Carrboro, NC.  I am here to tell you now what we knew then–that “the feminine is despised, fetishized, undermined. The feminine is complex, creative and a source of power in many of us.” We threw art parties with intent. Intentionality directed towards community love, safety, expression and liberation. Although my work as a painter began a couple of years before the conception of Feminine Dominance, I began this work – these portraits – at that same time and with those same intentions. To explore femininity in gender, race, religion, identity and class. The exhibition explores the complexities of femme identity through up-close and colorful portraits of the femme power and perspective.

Exhibit Dates: February 2018 – July 2018
