Event Details

“Happily Ever After” investigates the female gaze, modern femininity, and contemporary challenges to women’s rights. From self-defined vantage points of power, these women artists address the human experience through a female lens in the 21st century – a post-feminist era rife with demands for a new feminism. Addressing pre-pubescent characters, trans and female identities, emotionally charged language, and complex female forms, a single definition of woman is defied. In today’s fairytale, Cinderella is breaking the glass slipper and “happily ever after” remains elusive. Curated by Amie Potsic, Executive Director & Chief Curator at Main Line Art Center, the exhibition features work by artists Aubrie Costello, Jenny Drumgoole, Jes Gamble, Erica Zoë Loustau , Mari Ogihara , Glynnis Reed, and Emily Smith. A FREE artist talk will be held on Friday, Oct. 13, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, followed by an opening reception from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
