Vista Studios in Columbia, SC, Features Exhibit on Feminist Perspectives on Art

Vista Studios in Columbia, SC, will present the exhibit, Pretty Girls: a feminist perspective through art, on view in Gallery 80808, from June 10 - 12, 2011. A reception will be held on June 10, from 5-10pm.

Pretty Girls: a feminist perspective through art, is a collaborative project celebrating over 15 local artists and their viewpoints on artistic, intellectual and political feminist influences. 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.

Participating artists include: Eli Armstrong, Grace Barnes, Rachel Borgman, Reba Edwards, Mary-Ellyse Fendig, Joanna Gardner, Laura Garner, Autumn Germroth, Molly Harrel, Amanda Ladymon, Susan Lenz, Deana Rennick, Lucas Sams, Olivia Thompson, Brandon Verkaik, and Zuri Wilson.

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 found at (Pretty Girls: a feminist perspective through art).

If you miss the opening reception there will be studio hours from 10-6pm Saturday and noon-5pm Sunday.
