Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, Features Works by Young Women

The Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, will present Great Expectations, an art exhibition that explores the issues that arise from the numerous expectations placed on young women in modern society as seen through the eyes of six women, on view at the Seacoast Artists Guild Gallery at The Market Common, from Apr. 16 - 20, 2014. A reception will be held on Apr. 19, from 6-8pm.

The young women participating include: Ashlee flippin’ Arakas, Callie Barfield, Brittany Clark, Katie Farrelly, Rebecca Jolly, and Gwendolyn Washington.

Great Expectations will contain a series of work from each of the six artists. Through their individual work, the artists will explore their own personal views on the expectations of women and its limitations with their own style and media preference. The exhibition will highlight the subliminal and conscious effects of history, media, and reality on the steadily growing expectations of beauty, attitude, sexuality, and “being a lady.”

Art featured will contain the animalistic nature of the female, the suffocation caused by great expectations, explorations of the female body, media portrayal and its effect on young girls, and a classic princess with a reality twist. This exhibition gives the public the chance to support local art while experiencing the struggles and strengths of six young women through their thought-provoking and captivating art creations.

Arakas, Barfield, Clark, Farrelly, Jolly, and Washington are all undergraduate art students of Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC. They were given the opportunity to exhibit their work by University art professor and artist, Cat Taylor, due to their display of technical talent and individual point of view. This is their first time showcasing their work as a collective group.
