BLACK UMBRELLA ART GALLERY is pleased to announce HER, an exhibition curated by Christine Lee Smith.
HER is a collaborative exhibition of women artists from the Southern California area examining the tensions and realities of the female narrative from an exclusively female point of view. Throughout history, the feminine experience has largely been explained and expressed through male perspectives and male sensibilities; this exhibit seeks to give voice to the experiences of what it is to be female from those who live life everyday as female-identifying individuals, and to create space for open conversation through diverse forms of creative expression.
We’re looking for fresh, current, and diverse work by emerging and established female artists working in Southern California who are exploring the intricacies and complexities of being a female.
HER will open at Black Umbrella Art Gallery in Garden Grove, CA. Opening reception is Friday, February 1, 2019 opening at 7pm.
