Five regional artists – Catherine Armbrust, Dan Farnum, Marni Gable, Kelsey Hammond, and Rick Wright – exhibited their interpretations of the female figure at the Carter Art Center Gallery on the Penn Valley Campus from February 6 – March 6. The special exhibit is entitled “In The Looking.”
“In this exhibition are the variety of lenses through which American society views women, including their strengths and vulnerabilities. These complexities embedded in the work encourage viewers to assess their own assumptions of beauty, courage, and the female form,” said Bernadette Torres, director of the Carter Art Center Gallery.
The gallery will be open Tuesday – Friday from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., on Saturday from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m., and on first Fridays from 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. The exhibit is sponsored by The Friends of The Carter Art Center.
