Group Show at Hagedorn Foundation

Woman’s Image
March 4 – April 24, 2010
Opening Reception: March 4, 2010  6:00 to 8:00 pm

“Woman’s Image” is a group photography exhibition that articulates the many interpretations of what it is to be a female in America: child, temptress, nature girl,  fashionista, partner, mother , grandmother.Where does one locate our essential origin? In our social relations,  our surface, or an ambiguous unseen self or soul.  In the first floor gallery , some well-known but rarely seen vintage prints by Horst and Hoyningen-Huene show an older, rarer aesthetic of the female form, which clings to the surface aesthetic. Alongside these masters, several Sally Mann’s mix with works of mid career photographers Mario DiGaloma, Deanna Dikeman, Sal Lopes, Marianne Mitchell and up and coming new artists Jaclyn Cori Norman and Susan Laney.  In a separate project gallery, Morton Broffman’s sensitive and elegant Appalachia series spotlights the differences between the ideal of women in middle class society and the more real experiences of women around the world.

What Defines a Woman?
March 4 – April 24, 2010
Opening Reception: March 4, 2010  6:00 to 8:00 pm

Our second floor gallery  introduces three female artists struggling with the idea of their identity – Heidi Aishman, Beth Lilly and Sharma Shari – each in experimental formats. How do the labels “mother/professional,” “Hispanic/white,” “autonomous/codependent,” impact a woman’s day to day life.
