Main Gallery:

Am  I Woman?  Sonya Stockton

What is “woman”?   Woman is a symbol.  She is an idea.  She is a social construct, centuries in the making.  Our realities are comprised of symbols, but to what extent can we define our individuality in symbolic terms?  In this conceptually driven collection of Sonya Stockton’s work, the artist explores her contentiously duplicitous relationship with the complex framework of femininity and womanhood that history has unfolded.

Small Gallery:

Still Time for Woman’s Lib   Fab Rideti

Is there still time for women to have that cherished liberty, where everything is permitted? Fab Rideti plays upon female choices, and draws attention to the circumstances women find themselves in, with a humor and laughter that keeps thoughts of escape in perspective. Creating incongruous situations, using childrens toys, Fab photographically inllustrates the unbearable, and breaks taboos.
