August 31 - December 30
Dressed

To be dressed is to cover, adorn, or envelop the body in the guise we present to the outside world. To be dressed can be an exercise in simplicity, or an elaborate over-the-top performance. This exhibition presents the work of six contemporary artists working in a range of media whose works reference the intricacies of covering the body, the meaning held in garments, and the gendering of handwork. Broadly addressing materials, imagery, iconography, and memory, each artist experiments with the fluidity of form while acknowledging gendered constrictions placed on the body. Exhibiting artists include Catherine Bertulli, Jodi Colella, Merill Comeau, Mia Cross, Nancy Grace Horton, and Marky Kauffmann.
