Today: Closing Exhibit - check it out!

Girl Talk is a presentation of photographs, paintings, film, jewelry and quilted pieces exploring the themes of imposed identity, beauty, tradition and self-definition. The title of the show is inspired by the song "Girl Talk" by Dakota Staton. "Her rendition of "Girl Talk" reminds us of the importance of women sharing stories and telling histories. The history of women in this nation is comprised of a multitude of stories, struggles and successes." Willis declares.

Through their artistic works, the eight women represented in Girl Talk honor and extend the narratives of many women. "It is a celebration and an opportunity for reflection about those who give and sustain life with their bodies, spirits and voices," says Andrews.

Time: April 11, 2010 from 2pm to 6pm
Location: Renaissance Fine Art Gallery
